Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For The Prisoner Thorn Merlot 2017

The Prisoner Wine Company takes an unconventional approach to winemaking by working with impassioned growers to source varietals from vineyards and appellations across California. Alongside a family of growers, The Prisoner winemaking team pushes boundaries as they craft a selection of unexpected, yet artful wines.

This Thorn Merlot is sourced from acclaimed vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley. The family of small vineyards offers vines of varying ages and regionality, lending to layers of character and complexity. 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.

Varietal: 81% merlot; 19% blend of syrah, petite sirah, and malbec.

Critic Ratings

Wine Spectator Review - Issue Apr 30, 2021 - Rated 92:
Well-crafted, with medium-grained tannins supporting buoyant cherry, plum and currant flavors. Minerally midpalate, with hints of white pepper on the fresh finish. Drink now through 2025. 7,500 cases made. — KM
