Every year we host a Christmas Party for all of our Inwood Wine Guild members. This past weekend, we celebrated in our Dallas Location. One of our members, Deborah, sent in this photo from the event that was taken of her with our two wonderful Winemakers! So we wanted to take a moment to share it with all of you. Pictured; Winemaker Dan Gatlin, Deborah Brown, and Assistant Winemaker Spencer Gatlin. Thanks again for your submission Deborah! We look forward to seeing you again at our next Wine Guild event!

I often hear from many of you regarding my (hopefully entertaining) articles on wine quality. Likewise, I know it's been a long time since our last conversations. Usually the off-season winter months provide an excellent quiet time to reflect and write, but for better or worse, the last two seasons have come and gone like a whirlwind. As demand and production cycles and membership continues to exceed our wildest expectations, it seems as though "quiet time" is just a faint memory. However, this year I am committed to renewing our dialogue and with so much new data, we have plenty of fertile ground to cover. And although you will hear from me over the course of the next few months, one early opportunity has come my way which I think may interest you. As many of you know, Spencer and I traveled to New York City last June where we had a most enjoyable visit with many of the NYC wine media and trade community. We did this entirely on our own, as it was something I had conceived over the last 2 years. It was very successful and a great reception for Inwood. So successful in fact, that 16 of our fellow Texas wineries have organized to do the same this week. I will not be joining them, but was asked to provide a quote for their panel discussion. After preparing my work, it occurred to me that many of you in our Inwood circle might just be interested in it as well. Maybe it will stimulate your imagination and appetite for our continued discussions over the wintertime. So here it is, as submitted: After 15 years and countless millions spent, researchers have yet to establish a clinical relationship between soil and climate (aka "terroir") and flavor in wine. 100% of everything one tastes in wine can be defined by a complex matrix of more than 60,000 polyphenolic elements and their relative levels one to another, making a total palette of virtually infinite "fingerprints" of flavor. In turn, the formation of those 60,000+ compounds are entirely derived from the nutritional chemistries created through the physiological processes of the vine as it feeds its offspring for propagation, which is of course, the true purpose of grapes. The exact matrix of flavor is therefore embedded in the wine the moment the fruit is separated from the mother vine, and reflects either more ripeness or less ripeness, but not the myriads of terroir related descriptors we have traditionalized. The impact of humans is wildly underrated. The research did prove one thing: the exact cultivation techniques greatly impact every part of the flavor matrix and the humans almost never optimize their wine flavor, although seemingly without fail, poor "terroir" gets the blame. The implications are devastating for the wine world: 1. Wine cannot possibly reflect its place, and all such references are purely imagined. 2. Appellations are geologically baseless, and reflect local and regional and cultural techniques and philosophies. 3. Longer and shorter growing seasons are irrelevant as humans compensate for deficiencies in the matrix by advanced methodologies. 4. The topic of global warming and wine may be a bonanza for the wine media, but it is completely irrelevant for reasons mentioned in #3 above. The best producers are already making look-alike wines in vastly opposite climates proving that adaptation is easily accomplished regardless of climate. 5. Over the last 40 years, great wines have emerged from all over the world, not because the soil and climate improved, but because the humans got smarter. 6. In the future, it will not matter if wine comes from Texas, Bordeaux, Uruguay or Uganda. Some of the most "Bordeaux-accurate" wine I have had actually came from Algeria.
