Certainly one of THE most recognizable labels in the country, if not the world for serious wine buffs. Since its debut in 2000, The Prisoner red wine blend has revolutionized the art of blending, faithfully dispensing the wildly provocative aromas and fabulous fruit intensity that we’ve come to expect from The Prisoner.
When Dave Phinney (Orin Swift) first created The Prisoner, it unleashed an era where the traditional rules for blending (Bordeaux or Rhone varieties, for example) were turned on their head. The success of the Prisoner opened the floodgates for what is now one of the most popular wine types or blends, namely the “Proprietary Blend.”
The Prisoner has an impeccable reputation for quality, deliciously elaborate flavors and impressive charm. The 2015 comes stampeding from the glass with buoyancy, permeating with beautifully focused ripe cherries, wild berries, chocolate, and crushed violets.
Saturating your palate with otherworldly richness, sweet tannins and elaborate flavors, this is one of the best vintages of The Prisoner ever produced.
A glass-staining, deep, dense purple in color, the 2015 Prisoner was formulated from dozens of top vineyard sites throughout Napa Valley, including Tofanelli, Korte Ranch and Tiedemann.
Each distinct vineyard block adds its own unique dimension, helping to complete the uniquely complex flavors that we have come to love and expect from The Prisoner. You may want to stock up on the 2015, while it’s still available.
