THE PRISONER 2012 PROPRIETARY RED "THE PRISONER" CALIFORNIA 1.5L

1.5 Liter - The Prisoner is an innovative red blend that takes its stylistic cue from the drinkable “mixed blacks” first made by Italian immigrants who originally settled the Napa Valley. In the late 90’s there were a handful of Napa producers beginning to make this style of wine again and Dave Phinney became one of them.

It is well-known in the wine industry that the best wines come from great, well-maintained vineyards. Keeping in line with her predecessor Dave Phinney, winemaker Jen Beloz is puling fruit from some of the best properties in the Napa Valley, including Heitz Ink Grade, Somerston, Stagecoach, Black Sears, and Tofanelli. Her method for vineyard selection includes assessing the site, soil, varietal, grower and provenance, or the history, of the vineyard.

A blend of 46% Zinfandel, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Petite Sirah, 12% Syrah, and 2% Charbono, the wine has a deep ruby red hue that is framed in rich crimson. Aromas of black cherry and plum, surrounded by roasted coffee beans and vanillin oak accents. The entry is powerful and lush with flavors of bing cherry, blueberry and cocoa. Soft and velvety tannins round out the finish making this wine approachable and inviting.

WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - "Ripe, jammy, sweet and loaded with toasty oak. Subtle this is not, loaded with flavor, offering notes of black cherry, chocolate, licorice and cinnamon spice. Should appeal to fans of the style. Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Charbono. Drink now through 2018."
