The Denier 2013 - Glacial Lake Missoula Wine Co
J Harlen Bretz was a shining exemplar of the scientific method, a Denier of the orthodoxy of uniformitarianism. It took 40 years for the “scientific consensus” to admit that they were wrong and that Bretz’s Lake Missoula floods were real. He reminds us that science is never “settled” and that debate, skepticism & empiricism are the very essence of science. The Denier is made from Merlot & Cabernet Franc, from Burgess Vineyards in Pasco, WA. The wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak hogsheads. It is soft, plummy and refined, and will develop in the bottle considerably.
