The Prisoner Wine Company Thorn Merlot 2013
|Brand||The Prisoner Wine Company|
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Merlot Thorn is essentially dominated by Merlot but has small quantities of Malbec and Syrah blended with it. This 4,000-case production cuvée is outstanding. Loads of chocolate, cedar wood, black cherry and mocha notes jump from the glass of this velvety textured, voluptuous and fleshy wine. This sexy beast of a dry red wine should continue to drink well for another 4-5 years.
Wine SpectatorA firm structure combines with ripe, plush fruit to make a winning Merlot. Aromas of currant, espresso and grilled herb open to complex flavors framed by ripe tannins. Drink now through 2024.
