Description

The Prisoner Red Blend 2018

The Prisoner Red Blend draws inspiration from wines first made by the original Italian immigrant settlers in Napa Valley.
Enticing aromas of red cherries, dark chocolate, cloves and figs waft from the glass. Smooth and luscious mouthfeel. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a bright acidity. Lush raspberry, boysenberry and dark cherry flavours with layers of vanilla and baking spice. Closes in a long finish.

An unlikely blend of Zinfandel with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Charbono. The wine ages for 15 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 55% new.
The Prisoner Wine Company works with passionate growers to source varietals from vineyards and appellations across California. Alongside a family of growers, The Prisoner winemaking team pushes boundaries as they craft a selection of unexpected, yet artful wines. The Prisoner Wine Company is located on the legendary Highway 29 in Napa Valley.
