2019 Unshackled Cabernet Sauvignon
2019 Unshackled Cabernet Sauvignon, From California
Unshackled Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine, created by the innovative winemakers of The Prisoner Wine Company, spotlights vibrancy of fruit. Opening with aromas of plum and blackberry plus a hint of olive, this delightfully unconventional cabernet wine makes its mark on the world. Flavors of black stone fruit, clove, and dried herbs grace this sweet red wine, a flavor-forward cabernet with solid tannin structure and balanced acidity. A California red wine sourced from the state’s Central and North Coasts, this delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Merlot varietals is barrel-aged for more than a year in French and American oak. Perfect for a wine and cheese party, this flavorful cabernet sauvignon also pairs well with pork meatballs in tomato sauce or dark chocolate and raspberry layer cake
Covering the most vine acreage in the state compared to any other red wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon produces as much wine in California as Merlot and Pinot Noir combined. The state’s diverse terrain and micro climates, as well as the freedom of its winemakers, allow for an incredible range of wine styles from this single grape.
California’s most famous region—and especially for Cabernet Sauvignon—is the acclaimed Napa Valley. While Cabernet is successful throughout the world, rarely has it achieved such merit as it does from the Napa Valley. At this point the two are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other.
The Prisoner Wine Company’s eponymous first wine was inspired by the drinkable “mixed blacks” made by the Italian immigrants who originally settled in Napa Valley. Since launch, The Prisoner soon became recognized as one of the most innovative Napa Valley wines, leading the resurgence of California red blends and earning “cult wine” status.
