Johnson Estate Winery

Founders' Red

Founders' Red

Named in honor of the two founders of the farm and the winery, both named Fred Johnson.  Made largely from Estate-grown Chancellor grapes with the addition of ten percent Merlot. 

According to the Beverage Testing Institute (January 2015), "Bright blue violet color. Aromas and flavors of boysenberry custard a la mode, cashew brittle, and chocolate with a silky, lively, fruity medium body and a smooth, appealing, breezy finish with notes of strawberry preserves on nut toast, blood orange, leafy earth, and grape skins with fine tannins and light oak. A fun and easy-drinking red with attractive layers of flavor."
