    Winemaker's Notes:

    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. Both the name and label were inspired by the age-old method of using cuttings from a vineyard to propagate new vines.

    Powerful and structured, with intense aromas of ripe dark fruit, black cherry and subtle spicy notes of cedar and anise. The palette is rich and dense, with flavors of sweet plum and red berries and complimented with a hint of dark cocoa powder. Polished tannins and integrated French oak adorn a long silky finish.

    Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petite Sirah, 15% Syrah, 5% Zinfandel

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2011 Cuttings, with a whopping 15.4% natural alcohol, is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Petite Sirah and Syrah as well as a tiny dollop of Zinfandel. Juicy, deep and fruity, it is not complex, but satisfying on a hedonistic level. Medium to full-bodied and well-made, it coats the palate...

    Had this at The Prisoner release party the other night in Chicago. It was truly stunning and outdid Zaldo and Prisoner. It was the highlight of everyone's night. Depth and complexity of a Napa cab, but with an added piquant bite of syrah and petite syrah. Long finish, impossible to stop sipping. A gorgeous, special wine.
