Crane Assembly, Disciples, Zinfandel Blend

Better Than "The Prisoner"? Yes!
"Disciples is a winner." Antonio Galloni

Better than The Prisoner?

You bet!

When The Prisoner brand was sold a few year ago, creator, David Phinney, was precluded from making predominantly Zinfandel wines - until now.

In his third year free to compete, Phinney reminds us that very few winemakers blend as artfully as he does in the 2016 Crane Assembly "Disciples."

Returning to his roots, Phinney's 2016 Disciples is a stunning Zinfandel blend of 76% old vine Zinfandel, 13% Charbono, 6% Grenache and 5% Petite Sirah.

Aromas of brambly fruit, mixed berry cobbler, forest floor, black plums and boysenberry compote. "Floral, silky and nuanced, with compelling purity of fruit and terrific balance, the Disciples is a winner. Striking fruit density and alluring aromatic presence add character to this mid-weight, super-classic wine." Antonio Galloni

From only 65 barrels, this is an extremely limited Zinfandel blend that you are going to love!

Enjoy all summer long and over the next five years; this Prisoner progeny should be enjoyed with any of your favorite barbecue cuisine as well as hard cheeses.

Fantastic!

$39.95 per bottle / $479.40 per case
