Vineyard 36 Foundation Red 2021, Napa Valley, California

Vineyard 36 was created by a shared vision and a common goal to create unique and exceptional wines. Sourced from premier estates, the Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines of Vineyard 36 express the diversity of Napa Valley’s finest terroirs. “Our winemaking philosophy is to create powerful, elegant and complex wines that express the essence of the region. The Pillars of Foundation “All good ideas start with a passion. All great ideas prosper with a team.” The ivory label of Foundation is shaped like an ice rink, decorated with subtle skate mark patterns as a tribute to the professional hockey careers of Cam Ward & Tim Gleason. The right bank Bordeaux inspired Foundation has the roman numeral III to symbolize the founding members, Jason Earnest, Ward and Gleason, embossed in silver foil to recognize the Silver Medal won by Gleason playing for Team USA in the Vancouver Olympics. 2021 vintage: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot.
