- The Prisoner 2012 Product #27691 (In Stock)
The Prisoner is not for the faint hearted. This is a big - right around 15% alcohol - California red that escapes from the glass with an explosion of super-ripe red and black fruit plenty of spicy oak. It’s always an exotic flavor profile from an exotic blend: In 2012 46% Zinfandel, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Syrah, 18% Petite Sirah, and 2% Charbono. The super-ripe fruit comes from some of California’s top vineyards, including Heitz Ink Grade, Korte, York Creek, Black Sears and Stagecoach.
Like you, we don’t get to taste Prisoner until Halloween, but winemaker Jen Beloz’s notes are sure to make your mouth water! “The wine has a deep ruby red hue that is framed in rich crimson. Aromas of black cherry and plum, surrounded by roasted co¬ffee beans and vanillin oak accents. The entry is powerful and lush with favors of Bing cherry, blueberry and cocoa. Soft and velvety tannins round out the finish making this wine approachable and inviting.”
"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."Wine Spectator 90 points
