This philosophy of long-term thinking is embodied by the Long Now Clock, a massive mechanical device designed to keep time for 10,000 years. Funded by Jeff Bezos' Bezos Expeditions, the first full-scale clock is being constructed inside a remote mountain in Texas accessible only on foot. The idea is that people will contemplate nature and time on their pilgrimage to visit the clock, which will ring a unique chime each time a visitor winds it without ever repeating itself.

Press Notes:

"The 2005 Long Now possesses awesome richness, nuance and detail. A blend of Nebbiolo and Barbera, it sweeps across the palate with tons of dense, layered fruit. The wine's considerable richness covers the tannins nicely, but there is plenty of structure underneath. This is a gem from Giorgio Pelissero." – Antonio Galloni, 92 points
