At times, we all want to be bold and unique. Don’t take that risk with your fashion choices (remember that early 2000’s fashion flop?), but rather, do it with your wine choice. You can’t go wrong with this bold and luxurious red.
The Prisoner Red Blend is an unapologetically bold choice. Made with an innovative blend of Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon, along with Petite Sirah, Syrah and Charbono, the Prisoner features a diverse combination of dark grapes that creates a distinct quality and character unique to this wine. The result is a lusciously smooth and balanced red.
On the nose, expect a bursting bouquet of Bing cherries, dark chocolate, clove and roasted fig, followed by juicy ripe fruit flavours. Notes of raspberry and boysenberry with hints of pomegranate give way to a lingering taste of warm vanilla on the palate. A long, smooth finish lingers in your mouth.
After being aged in a combination of old and new French and American oak barrels, this beautiful wine reaches its full flavour. Bold and rich, the Prisoner will stand up to flavourful dishes. Pair it with tender grilled meat, slow braised BBQ pulled pork, or match it with portobello mushrooms overlaid with smoked cheese.
Edgy and full of flavour, the Prisoner is a bold red meant for indulging. Reach for it when you’re looking to wow your dinner guests, impress your boss with a thoughtful holiday gift or treat yourself after a long day (or a long year, let’s face it).
Originally inspired by the idea of "mixed blacks," wines that were produced from field blends and made by Italian immigrants who settled in Napa Valley, this California red isn’t your traditional wine, and this isn’t your typical winery. The Prisoner Wine Company pushes this style of rich, bold, mouth-filling wines to exceptional quality. Winemaker Chrissy Wittmann works with a network of growers, sourcing 100 per cent of their grapes from small family farmers.
