Founders' Red

Fruit forward, lightly-oaked, medium body with fine tannins. 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 Pinot Noir. 

The 2016 vintage was awarded 90 Points/GOLD/Exceptional & Best Buy by Tastings.com (Beverage Testing Institute, September 2018): "....An instantly appealing Chancellor that offers gobs of creamy oak flavor and luscious fruits."
