"The McDuck is the War & Peace result of my (Adam) theories and ideas on wine. Each bottle contains a minimum of 17 notions, 12 experiments, & 2 diatribes on the direction of the industry, the American palate, the Silver Surfer, or running with the bulls. It is a phenomenon of reductive sculpture in which I talk endlessly and Gabe smartly deflects my thoughts as daggers to carve out the resulting wine. Which, on the strength of her patience with me and skill as a winemaker, turns out to be just what I wanted.

A clever comfort wine. Warm spice and rich fruit, but with a lean filament of electricity, ever present and threatening to wake up a monster. A wine best served with food, or revolution.

61% Cabernet franc (Brix 23.7, pH 3.34)
39% Merlot (Brix 26.2, pH 3.6)
A melange of French oak
A melange of big words"

--Adam (Gamling, of Gamling and McDuck)
