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. 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.

Features a creamy texture, with ripe red and dark fruit flavors of roasted plum, rhubarb and dark cherry. Smoke and dark chocolate notes show on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 8,000 cases made.

Fans of The Prisoner will like this broadly juicy blend of 81% Merlot with Syrah, Petite Sirah and Malbec, the body full and fleshy. Ripe in baked plum and chocolate, it's robust and smooth.
