rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This 2012 "The Prisoner" Red wine is a complex, intriguing and juicy wine. Full of spice and fruit with notes of nutmeg, cassis, boysenberry, vanilla and cherry on the nose it immediately entices and gets the palate singing. The cassis follows through first on the palate then is followed by a heavily oak dominate taste profile. Flavours of cedar, tobacco, vanilla and nutmeg take over the palate second while the wine continues to fill the mouth. The tannins create a box at the front of the mouth then round out around the edges to continue to fill the mouth. To finish the palate flavours of cooked boysenberries linger with the cassis, cherry and vanilla. With such a full mouth-feel and such strong tannins, this wine would be perfectly paired with a rich red meat like Filet Mignon, or grilled meats (since we're heading into BBQ season) such as ribs with barbecue sauce. This is a delicious find!
