Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Holy-gorgeous aromas! Why imprison jammy cassis, blueberry, plum, spice and floral notes that linger on forever? Just set it free! The palate is velvety smooth, ripe and robust! The Prisoner's flavour profile features succulent plum and anise with nuances of tanned leather, cocoa and tobacco. Enjoy with braised veal shanks. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A very popular wine in Kingston Ontario (LET ME OUT!!!). Incredible nose being rich complex and powerful. On the palate loads of power and complexity with oak eventually overtaking the fruit on a long finish.
Napa Valley's The Prisoner (2015) is a red wine blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah with small amounts of Syrah, Grenache and Charbono (Bonarda) thrown in for good measure. The label for this wine is "The Prisoner," an etching by Francisco de Goya made in 1807, a bold work depicting the harshness of life. Great with grilled burgers. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
