Buy The Prisoner Red
Dark red, almost garnet hue with bright red on the rim.Ripe cherry and cedar on the nose with hints of dried rose petal and sweet oak. Lovely entry that leads into a fat and savory mid palate. Ripe fig and black currant dominate the finish with a breadth of soft, well integrated tannins.
Wine Spectator 92 points - Deep, jammed with fruit character, this ripe version offers plenty of new oak, revealing a rich texture and zesty flavors of smoky licorice, blackberry cobbler and cracked pepper. Drink now through 2019.T.F. (Mar 13 2013)

Producer
In the relentless pursuit of creating inherently delicious wines, we are inspired by making wines that are truly unique and intriguing. Our mission is to forge our way off the beaten path, seek interesting varietals and blend them together to make wines that are authentic, approachable and thought-provoking. When we took ownership of The Prisoner and Saldo in 2009 from Orin Swift, we knew assembling the right team would be essential. With more than a decade of winemaking experience at Ravenswood crafting Zinfandel, Jen Beloz was the ideal person to take the lead. In order to remain true to the wine’s original style and vision, Jen worked alongside Dave Phinney, founder of The Prisoner, for the first two vintages. In 2012, she took the lead and seamlessly blended the wines across the entire portfolio. Jen’s role extends far beyond the cellar to grape sourcing and collaborating with our family of vineyard growers. Much of her time is spent visiting our vineyard sites across California’s premier wine-growing regions, carefully assessing the style and quality of the fruit in order to create authentic and impactful wines.
