Prisoner Wine Co. Thorn Merlot
TASTING NOTES: Prisoner Wine Co. Thorn Merlot
You don’t know what it wants and you’ve underestimated its character. But you can feel it watching your every move. A cunning presence lingers, like a thorn in your side. It isn’t going anywhere.
Earthy aromas open up into cocoa, blackberry, cedar, and anise. It’s smooth with flavors of cherry, chocolate, vanilla, and a mild toastiness. The finish is long with balanced acidity.
THE PRISONER WINE COMPANY Our winemaking team works with a family of growers to source a diverse variety of grapes from premier vineyards throughout California. The resulting wines are interesting blends of distinct quality and character.
ABOUT THE WINE While working with our growers in Napa Valley, we came across small, premium vineyard lots of Merlot, which served as our inspiration to create Thorn. The Merlot was blended with Syrah to create depth in the body while Malbec and Petite Sirah accentuate the fruit.
THE BLEND 80% Merlot; 20% Blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Malbec
AGING A combination of French and Hungarian oak barrels, 35% new
