Crane Assembly Disciples Napa Red Blend 2016 Product #33091 (In Stock)
Crane Assembly Disciples Napa Red Blend 2016 Crane Assembly Disciples Napa Red Blend 2016

Remember The Prisoner, a wild blend of Zinfandel and a kitchen sink-ful of other grapes Dave Phinney made by accident early in his career and then grew to huge success before selling first The Prisoner and then his entire Orin Swift operation?  Here's a question for you - what would The Prisoner have been like if Dave had the opportunity to create it not from a range of grapes more or less scrounged from up and down the California coastland, but instead from two great vineyards right in the heart of Napa Valley?

You don't have to wonder - because Crane Assembly Disciples is that wine.  For this wine, Dave and his team source Zinfandel (76%), Charbono, Grenache and Petit Sirah from Milat Vyd in St. Helena, the famed Morisoli Vyd on the Rutherford Bench, and other selected sites.  Robert Parker's 94 point review of the debut 2014 edition is still spot on:  "This wine displays spicy, peppery steak tartare, roast Provençal herbs, and briary black cherry and blackberry fruit. It has terrific body, length, richness and viscosity. It is a sensational Zinfandel to drink over the next 5-7 years."
