TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

This bottle’s name is inspired by the tradition of using cuttings from prized sites to propagate new vines. The Cuttings Cabernet Sauvignon combines the beautifully deep intensity of Cabernet Sauvignon with the richness of Petite Sirah and Shiraz, and a little of the complexity of Zinfandel.

It has aroma notes of fresh roasted coffee, vanilla, wild berries, and oak. On the palate, you have blueberry, dark cherry, and cocoa, with a pleasant almost mint finish. It’s full-bodied and rich; definitely one you’ll want to try.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

Bold cheeses like cheddar and Gouda work great with this Cabernet Sauvignon. And of course, a good red deserves some good red meat. A NY strip steak, served with a siding of potatoes, perhaps, or some lamb with roast vegetables. It’ll also go great with some barbecued ribs, or barbecued chicken.

For dessert, nothing makes a bold red shine brighter than a dark chocolate cake.

NO SHACKLES, NO RULES

The Prisoner Wine Company takes its name from a classic sketch by 19th century Spanish artist, Francisco Goya. It‚Äôs called ‚ÄúLe Petit Prisonier,‚ÄĚ and is part of a series entitled, ‚ÄúThe Disasters of War.‚ÄĚ It was created as protest against the injustices and brutalities committed in the Spanish War of Independence in 1808.

The wine company resonated with this piece, as it has stood in support and solidarity with minorities, joining the fight against racism, mass incarceration, and systemic oppression. Committed to education, diversity, and inclusivity, they aim to create an environment that is safe and respectful to their employees and business partners.

The Prisoner Wine Company is known for their blends. And their first release in 2000, also named The Prisoner, skyrocketed to cult status, and sparked a trend in red blends. At the time, blends were virtually unheard of, with winemakers preferring single-grape varietals. The Prisoner literally changed the game. They have since released a number of blends, all as innovative, brave, and bold as the first.

Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18¬įC. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
