"The New Big Brother"
Surveillance capitalism is, according to Shoshanna Zuboff,
what happens when companies scoop up the data you willingly posted
and use it for their own commercial ends.
"Your Read it With Wine"
2016 Skyfall Merlot, 13.99
Wonderfully developed plum, vanilla and leather aromas swirl in the glass.
Juicy flavors of cherry candy coupled with hints of cocoa powder weave
through the palate. Balanced acidity and polished tannins on the finish.

Tasting Notes: Our 2016 Rutherford Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc reflects both the excellent concentration of the smaller-crop vintage and the personality of our exceptional vineyard around our winery in Rutherford. As typical of this estate-grown Sauvignon Blanc, the wine shows the most tropical fruit expression of the three Sauvignon Blanc wines that we produce at Provenance. The aromas and flavors are filled with juicy pineapple and white peach notes, intertwined with citrus blossom and wet-stone minerality. Partial barrel fermentation and aging in new oak added hints of toasted almond, nutmeg and vanilla. Yeast contact enhanced the silky texture and weight on the palate. Showcasing the quality of our estate vineyard, this wine has rich fruit intensity, impeccable balance and a crisp, yet creamy, lemon curd finish.
