"The objective is not the
top of the mountain, for that would be like setting
a goal of swimming to the
middle of the ocean."
-Jamling Tenzing Norgay

The Sherpa you see on the 2009 Sherpa Zinfandel is Jamling Tenzing Norgay, son of the legendary Tenzing Norgay (first man to summit Everest, an honor he shares with Sir Edmund Hillary, who he guided up the mountain). Jamling is also an Everest Summiteer, a Himalayan adventure guide, and someone who truly uses the outdoors as his office.
