“As a winemaker for the past 15 years, I have watched many old vineyards and varieties be replanted to Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is about preserving Napa Valley Merlot.”
—Jen Beloz, Winemaker
We have a very special offer from The Prisoner Wine Company of a classic Napa Valley Merlot of the old school.
While working with their growers, The Prisoner Wine Company came across small vineyard lots of Merlot, which had managed to survive being replanted to Cabernet Sauvignon. Inspired to preserve these remaining Merlot lots and introduce their distinct style of Napa Valley Merlot, Thorn was created. The wine is a blend of Merlot, along with Syrah and Malbec. Deep purple in color, the wine releases aromas of black cherry with hints of cedar and pencil lead. Dense flavors of dark fruits and rich plum are framed by velvety tannins and an opulent, lingering finish.
Thorn is sourced from acclaimed vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley, including Lee Hudson in the Los Carneros Appellation, Stagecoach and Antica owned by the Antinori Family in the Atlas Peak Appellation, and Trefethen Family Vineyards in the Oak Knoll District of Napa. The family of small vineyards, offers vines of varying ages and regionality, lending to the layers of character and complexity.
We are here to tell you that this wine is a definite winner and super special. There was a very small production so limited to three bottles per person please. First come, first served…this is a rare opportunity to purchase this new release. The price is $44.99 per bottle.
