Founder’s Blend

California

This wine yields aromas of bing cherry, chocolate, roasted fig, and espresso. Fine but sustained tannins hold the profile together giving way to a smooth and flowing texture. Finally, hints of black plum, pomegranate and ganache become evident on the exquisite finish.

Winemaker Notes
Grapes are selected from estate vineyards in California and our Chalk Knoll Vineyards ranch in San Ardo within the San Lucas AVA in southern Monterey county just north of Paso Robles, California. Aged 17 months on 20% new French and 5% new American oak.
