WA 92 WS 91 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend The Prisoner is a creative blend of 44% Zinfandel, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petite Sirah, as well as Syrah, Grenache and Charbono. This dense, full-bodied, opulent red reveals gutsy, rich, peppery, meaty, blackberry, blackcurrant and licorice notes. A savory, lusty, heady red, it begs for a grilled steak or a big, juicy hamburger. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."
According to Wine Spectator - "Bold and stylish, with dark cherry, toasty oak and black pep - per aromas and briary, dense flavors of blackberry, espresso and grilled anise. The tannins tighten on the finish. Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Charbono. Drink now through 2021."
Winemakers Notes - "The Prisoner truly is... “one of a kind”. When Dave Phinney (founder) launched the wine in 2003, there really was no other wine like it. The wine is a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Syrah and Grenache. The wine features enticing aromas of bing cherry, espresso, and roasted fig. Persistent flavors of ripe raspberry, pomegranate, and wild berry linger harmoniously for a smooth and luscious finish." 15.2% ABV.
