Fatal Attraction - How Cabernet Sauvignon was Born
Our next series, on Friday, May 1st, “Fatal Attraction: How Cabernet Sauvignon was Born.” We will first look into the unlikely parents of Cabernet Sauvignon, with Foundry Cabernet Franc from Stagecoach Vineyard, plus Foundry Sauvignon Blanc from Morgaen Lee Vineyard. Refined and beautiful, these wines will have us puzzling over their powerful and showy offspring, during the following week’s session on May 8th. That second week, we swirl, sip, and ponder our full bodied Foundry Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and lip-smacking Foundry Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon.

Foundry Wines: 2019 Sauvignon Blanc, Yountville, Napa Valley
A sophisticated socialite, this layered sauvignon blanc takes on added dimension with one component aged in neutral French oak, and the other in stainless steel.
Foundry Wines: 2016 Cabernet Franc, Stagecoach Vineyard, Napa Valley
Inky black in color with a lush fore-palate. This wine picks up weight in the middle palate with refined tannins on the finish. Not for the timid, we laid this wine down in bottle for an additional 12 months of aging prior to its release.
Foundry Wines: 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The nose tells a complex tale of juniper berry, kalamata olive, oolong tea and blackberry pie. New French
oak brings a touch of vanilla sweetness to support a palate of incredibly silky and supple tannins.
Foundry Wines: 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley
A single sheet of microfiche linking an off-limits stretch of the Nevada desert to RFID chips, fluoridated water and a grassy knoll in Dallas. No digital footprint. Instead, this lip smacking wine reveals secret notes of dark cherry layered with cola, cocoa powder and pie spice. Its contents must be poured, sipped and memorized.
