2015 The Prisoner, Napa Valley
The Prisoner was created and inspired by the drinkable “mixed blacks” first made by the Italian immigrants who settled in the Napa Valley. Launched in 2003, The Prisoner soon became the most recognized innovative and unique Napa Valley Red Wine blend, leading the resurgence of blends by incorporating Zinfandel with the unlikely “mix” of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Charbono.
2014 Blindfold White Blend, California
Created to provide the perfect white wine companion to The Prisoner, Blindfold is equally bold and intriguing. A creative white blend, begins with a classic Chardonnay base, and blend in Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Chenin Blanc, and Marsanne.
2014 Saldo Zinfandel, California
Saldo is the prototypical Zinfandel that showcases Northern California’s most renowned Zinfandel vineyards and regions. The word “Saldo” is of Latin origin often referring to “from here and there” we are sourcing Zinfandel from regions “here and there” across Northern California.
2013 Thorn Merlot, Napa Valley
While working with our Napa Valley growers, we came across Merlot that managed to escape being replanted to Cabernet Sauvignon. Inspired us to preserve these prestigious Merlot lots and introduce our distinct style of Napa Valley Merlot, Thorn was created.
2013 Cuttings Cabernet Sauvignon, California
Our Cabernet Sauvignon, is a unique and special blend. It combines the richness, complexity and depth of hillside Cabernet Sauvignon with the structure and intensity of Petite Sirah and Syrah.
