2019 The Prisoner

About the Wine

The Prisoner was inspired by the “mixed blacks” first made by the Italian immigrants who originally settled in Napa Valley. The Prisoner is now the most recognized Napa Valley red blend, leading the resurgence of interesting blends by incorporating Zinfandel with the unlikely mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Charbono. The 2019 is a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Charbono.

Winemaker Notes

This blend features enticing aromas of Bing cherry, dark chocolate, clove and roasted fig. Persistent flavors of ripe raspberry, boysenberry, pomegranate and vanilla linger harmoniously, for a smooth and luscious finish.

Food Pairings

This well-structured, full bodied wine pairs well with Appetizers, Dinner and Dessert.

My favorite appetizer to pair it with is caviar or aged cheddar.

If enjoying with dinner, this wine is ideal with roasted, grilled or barbecued meats such a lamb, ham, duck and beef.

If having with dessert, my favorite pairings are flan and cheesecake!

The Wine Down

Trust me when I say, this blend will never disappoint!

It’s also reasonably priced. You can find this blend from $40 -$45

If you’re ever in Napa Valley, make sure to visit The Prisoner Wine Company. They have an amazing tasting room . Please note a reservation is required.
