The grapes for the Omen blend are 63% Zinfandel, 21% Syrah, 8% Barbera and 8% Petite Sirah. Each vineyard was picked separately, the grapes were crushed/de-stemmed and cold-soaked 3 days before fermentation with an extensive skin maceration (10 to 20 days). The resulting wines were carefully blended then aged in French oak (30% new, 70% neutral) for 9 months before bottling.
Why be a prisoner of The Prisoner? This Omen is a good sign…big and chewy, with intense flavors of blackberry, blueberry, bramble and spice; peppered with notes of cedar and oak and firm, gripping tannin. And it’s a bargain to boot!
