You are likely already familiar with this remarkable wine phenomenon, notable mostly because it represents was a simple innovation hiding in plain sight: a blend of high-quality, old vine Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Charbono. It’s a fantastic alchemy that has won renown and fans all across the country for almost 16 years now.

The Prisoner also has a dynamite tasting room experience in the works for you—opening soon, it’s in the former site for Franciscan in Rutherford, completely remodeled and transformed into a modern dungeon of sorts, except with wine and friendly people. On the winemaking side, it’s also the ideal playground for winemakers Chrissy Wittmann and Niki Williams to craft pure, fruit-driven wines.

The 2017 Prisoner is boomin’, with expressive aromas of boysenberry liqueur, dried cherries, sweet pipe tobacco, dark chocolate, black figs, and clove. The wine sweeps over the palate with an unctuous, immensely pleasurable texture. What a great way to preview the latest in a line of great vintages in the Napa Valley!

Why not treat yourself to a box, at what is approaching the lowest price in the USA?
