PRISONER 2011 PROPRIETARY RED "CUTTINGS" CALIFORNIA 750mL

After years of amazing and envious success with their red blend, Prisoner has finally released two new wines…a red and a white! Keeping in line with their roots, they have sourced from prominent, high quality vineyards throughout California, and while the initial reviews from the distributor were favorable, we had to taste them for ourselves…and they are downright fantastic!

The next wine is the Cabernet Sauvignon based wine called Cuttings. An amazing blend of Cabernet (65%), Syrah (15%), Petite Sirah (15%) and Zinfandel (5%), it's kind of a reverse blend of original Prisoner. These grapes come mostly from Napa vineyards near Pritchard Hill, Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain, and one key property in Sonoma. Cuttings combines the richness, complexity and depth of Cabernet with the structure and intensity of Petite Sirah and Syrah, all the while channeling the robust character of Zinfandel. Both the name and label were inspired by the age-old method of using cuttings from a vineyard to propagate new vines. This wine is powerful and structured, with intense aromas of ripe dark fruit, black cherry and subtle spicy notes of cedar and anise. The palate is rich and dense, with flavors of sweet plum and red berries and complimented with a hint of dark cocoa powder. Polished tannins and integrated French oak adorn a long silky finish.
