Vineyard 36 2017 Foundation Red - Orchard Road Vineyard
Vineyard 36 was created by a shared vision and a common goal to create unique and exceptional wines. Nothing comes to fruition simply because someone declares it so. Discipline, persistence, dedication, and a competitive spirit are all prerequisites for success. Passion becomes contagious when it is shared.
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. 86% Merlot (86% Orchard Ave. Vineyard Merlot, 14% George Latour III Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon).
Owner's: Jason Ernest, Tim Gleason, Cam Ward. Winemaker: Keith Emerson
