From the great era of the roaring twenties, Prohibition gave rise to the infamous ‘Kings of Prohibition’. From 1920 to 1933, as a nationwide
constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcohol was in effect in the United States, organized criminals quickly seized upon the opportunity. Bootlegging exploded as speakeasies around the country sought out illegal alcohol. During this dry period, myths were born around the bootleggers. Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, Bugsy Siegel, and Stella Beloumant, among others, became legends, transforming wine history and setting the path for wine distribution around the world. Today, we pay homage and make our own wine history with the ‘Kings of Prohibition.’ Crafted by esteemed Calabria Family winemaker Jeremy Nascimben in Australia, each bottle of Kings of Prohibition brings to life an infamous ‘bootlegger’ with a story to tell.
Named after Bugsy Siegel, a mobster who made history on the Las Vegas strip, ‘Kings of Prohibition’ Cabernet Sauvignon is an attractive fruitdriven red with a full bouquet of sweet berries and violets complemented by subtle French oak. The ripe berry character flows smoothly onto the palate, combining with spices, vanilla oak, and soft chewy tannins. This wine is a delicious match for roast lamb or aged cheddar cheese.
