This is an absolutely stellar blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot made with fruit sourced from two of the best vineyards in Napa Valley - one in the Rutherford AVA and the other in the Oak Knoll District AVA. This is a sophisticated, sexy wine with great balanced, structure, and complexity. Bursting with red and black fruit, a hint of pepper and spice, and a backbone of well-integrated oak, this wine has soft tannins and a long, rich finish. This wine is drinking very well in its youth, but for those who like some age on their wines, this wine should continue to develop into 2026 and beyond.
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.
A project spearheaded by wine industry veteran Jason Earnest, and professional hockey players Cam Ward and Tim Gleason, Vineyard 36 produces stunning Cabernet Sauvignon based wines made with fruit sourced from some of Napa Valleys finest vineyards. The wines are powerful, complex, elegant, and balanced. We're very excited to introduce you to their wines.More from this winery
