The Prisoner Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
From the most recognised Napa Valley red blend comes a distinct, new wine, made in the same iconic style as The Prisoner Red Blend - The Prisoner Napa Cabernet Sauvignon.
This Cab shows aromas of black cherry and ripe plum layered with vanilla and baking spice. Concentrated dark fruit flavours culminate in a lush, full mouthfeel and a lengthy finish.
Hand-picked grapes ferment in bins for 10-20 days to allow the tannins to mature. All lots ferment separately and are pumped two times each day. Only once the tannins have fully developed are the grapes finally pressed, separating the juice from the skins.
Because it’s Prisoner there’s got to be a few other grapes added to the blend including Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, Petite Sirah and even a touch of Charbono like in The Prisoner Red.
The wine aged 15 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 55% new.
