Because isn't that the whole point?
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.View all products by The Prisoner Wine Company
Earthy aromas open up into cocoa, blackberry, cedar, and anise. The entry is smooth with flavors of cherry, chocolate, vanilla, and a mild toastiness. The finish is long with balanced acidity.
Blend: 77% Merlot; 23% Blend of Malbec and Syrah
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 accentuates the fruit.
