‘Pied à Terre’ (“foot to earth”) embraces the philosophy that “the farmer’s footprint is the best fertilizer,” i.e. that attention to detail and meticulous care in the vineyard provide the most important foundation for making great wines. The lavish style of ‘Love on Mars’ represents a nod to the glam-rock of David Bowie (a favorite inspiration of sommelier Richard Luftig, who, along with winemakers Clay Mauritson and Emma Kudritzki, form the heart and soul of Pied à Terre). ‘Love on Mars’ comes from a unique selection of barrels discovered to have aged more quickly and sumptuously than the others. After sampling and blending, the wine was bottled with minimal sulfur added, resulting in a cuvée that is fresh and vibrant, with a palate that remains lushly textured yet crackling with energy. A profusion of dark raspberry, blackberry, cherry, and blueberry flavors melds with delicate layers of violets, cocoa nibs, and baking spices. It finishes fresh and long, maintaining mouthwatering acidity and firmly integrated tannins. Organically grown, vegan.
