California - Cuttings is really an exceptional wine to make. The extreme hillside sourcing and the blending of alternative varietals with Cabernet create a wine that has nice structure and a dense, velvety mouthfeel.


WA 91+ Pts - According to Robert Parker - The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Cuttings is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine, but blended with some Petite Sirah and Syrah as well as a touch of Zinfandel. 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. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.

Winemakers Notes - Inspired by the age-old method of using cuttings from a vineyard to propagate new vines, this new Cabernet-based blend is unique and special. Cuttings combines the richness, complexity and depth of Cabernet with the structure and intensity of Petite Sirah and Syrah, all the while channeling the robust character of Zinfandel. Powerful and structured, the wine features intense aromas of ripe plum reduction layered with hints of cocoa powder and cigar box. Velvety with dense flavors of black cherry, cola and freshly roasted coffee beans which lead to soft tannins and a plush, lengthy finish. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Zinfandel. 15.4% ABV.
