The Prisoner Wine Company Cuttings Red Blend 2013
|Brand||The Prisoner Wine Company|
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Cuttings is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine, but blended with some Petite Sirah and Syrah as well as a touch of Zinfandel. This is outstanding wine, and there are 5,000 cases of it. The Cabernet comes from top sites such as the Inkgrade Vineyard that Les Behrens made well-known. The wine offers plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit as well as some licorice, truffle, and lead pencil shavings. It is full-bodied, again very opulent (a hallmark of all of the wines from The Prisoner) and finishes authoritatively. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
Wine SpectatorCentered on up-front berry pie flavors that are juicy and direct, turning somewhat softer and simpler on the finish. This shows no shortage of easygoing fruit allure. Drink now. 6,000 cases made.
