Each elementís isotopes are functionally indistinguishable; only quantitative studies can isolate individual atoms by mass. Scientists use mass spectrometry, NMR, and other methods to quantify various isotopes either found naturally or incorporated in their experimental designs.

I strive to isolate the best qualities from specific grape varietals, studying a variety of variables, such as growing conditions(soil, sunshine, vineyard management), fermentation conditions (sugar levels, yeast strain, micronutrients, fermentation temperature), and aging conditions (cellar temperature and humidity, barrel producer, toast & age)
 
I continue to test the hypothesis that thoughtful combinations of these diverse conditions will yield subjectively superior results.
