2017 Foundation Red Blend - Vineyard 36

2017 Foundation
Red Blend


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 Merlot, 14% George III Cabernet Sauvignon)
