2015 Wayfinder

Wayfinder is a beacon that has drawn me in. I made her in 2012 as a one off, but ultimately she was too intriguing to not pursue. I never wanted to get into the Chard game, Wayfinder is a swerve. Though as they say “The straight line is a godless line”....

Santa Maria Valley

TASTING NOTES: The sun-dense beach is brilliant at sunset. There is a glass of ice water with lemon on the windowsill and a sharp breeze teasing the ocean. On the side table: crisp pear cookies on a plate and a Newcomb vase heavy with June’s flowers: honeysuckle, plumeria, orchids and cherry blossoms. It will be over so soon. Then back inland, to fall.
