Anarchist Wine Co. Conspiracy Theory 2013
A single sheet of microfiche linking an off-limits stretch of the Nevada desert to RFID chips, fluoridated water and a grassy knoll in Dallas. No digital footprint. Instead, this lip smacking wine reveals secret notes of dark cherry layered with cola, cocoa powder and pie spice. Its contents must be poured, sipped and memorized. A unique blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Blend: 32% Petite Sirah, 22% Syrah, 18% Merlot, 16% Zinfandel, 12% Caberrnet Sauvignon

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.
While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.
Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.
