6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2014 Drylands Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Layers of passion fruit and pink grapefruit with hints of tropical fruit, melon, and fresh herb. Rich and mouthfilling. Laden with tropical fruit and citrus impressively structured by juicy acidity
89 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.25 Retail $16.99

2014 Prisoner Wine Co Blindfold White blend
Napa Valley, Ca
Chardonnay, Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Marsanne as well as a touch of Semillon.
This wine is gorgeous, complex with inviting aromas of honeysuckle, grilled white peach and apricot. A luscious entry of toasted hazelnut and mandarin are balanced by bright acidity and minerality. The finish is rich and creamy with flavors of lemon zest and caramelized sugar.
89 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $9.75 Retail $24.99

2013 Saved Red Blend
Central Coast, Ca
Mostly Merlot, Malbec, Syrah and Zinfandel
Rich, ripe and full flavor. Individual parcels were selected from the best regions, then handled and blended separately to maintain the unique fruit characteristics of each. Oak aging was in 30% new French oak for 16 months prior to blending. A robust, powerful wine with a big personality and a generous finish.
BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99

2013 Prisoner Wine Co Thorn Merlot
Napa Valley, Ca
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. 92 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $15.00 Retail $39.99

2013 Prisoner Wine Co Cuttings Cabernet
Napa Valley, Ca
This is outstanding wine, and there are 5,000 cases of it. The Cabernet comes from top sites such as the Inkgrade Vineyard that Les Behrens made well-known. The wine offers plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit as well as some licorice, truffle, and lead pencil shavings. It is full-bodied, again very opulent (a hallmark of all of the wines from The Prisoner) and finishes authoritatively. 91+ Pts Robert Parker
BTG $15.00 Retail $39.99
