The Prisoner – Napa Valley, California

the-prisonerThis month’s featured wine is The Prisoner from Napa Valley, California. According to the Prisoner Wine Company, this red blend is based on the “mixed blacks” made by Italian immigrant wine makers in the early days of Napa Valley.

The Winemaker notes include:

“…enticing aromas of Bing cherry, dark chocolate, clove, and roasted fig. Persistent flavors of ripe raspberry, boysenberry, pomegranate, and vanilla linger…”

The vineyard claims to have started a Napa Valley trend with this unique blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Charbono.
The Prisoner features a piece of art taken from Francisco Goya’s “The Disasters of War” engravings. If you’re in the mood for something new and exciting, consider The Prisoner!
