Winestyr Review

This is an absolutely stellar blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, utilizing the freshness of Carneros with the power and density of Howell Mountain. Fashioned after the full-bodied and long living wines of Bordeaux's Right Bank, this is another in an excellent string of Foundation Red wines from Vineyard 36.

What We Love

  • Drinking beautifully in its youth, but still cellar worthy
  • Elite vineyard sourcing

This a high fashionable, delicious blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.


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.
