2017 VINEYARD 36 FOUNDATION PROPRIETARY RED
Winery Notes: “Explosive red and black fruit aromas are complimented by hints of violets, perfume, baking spices and vanilla. Bright Bing cherry, hints of sandalwood and clove with a mouthwatering acid profile, medium-full body and velvety tannin structure. A slight mineral, slate component adds a nuance to this fresh, approachable red blend. Drinkable upon release, will age gracefully for 10+ years.”
