Orin Swift’s The Prisoner Napa Valley Red Wine is one of the most sought after domestic red wines. Year after year, legions of devout fans of The Prisoner increases, and the wine does not disappoint fans of explosive, sexy red wines. One reason The Prisoner has such a loyal following may be due to it’s consistently rich structure and fruit forward character that fans of big red wines can rely on year after year. Winemaker Notes: “The 2009 has a deep ruby hue that is nearly opaque.The aromas elevate from the glass starting with black currant, dark blackberry, cherry, and cassis rounded out by subtle hints of seasoned French and American oak. The entry of the wine is massive and leads into a lush middle framed by bright acid and supple tannins. The finish is long, lingering and filled with soft velvety tannins lasting for nearly thirty seconds.” ($35) T h e P r i s o n e r B l e n d 49% Zinfandel, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon 18% Syrah 7% Petite Sirah 3% Charbono 1% Grenache
