Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The Prisoner is a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Charbono sourced from ~80 vineyards throughout Napa Valley. Rich and layered with sweet dark fruit, blueberry, and vanilla notes on the nose and palate. At 15.2% it's remarkably soft and luscious, great balance of fruit, acid and tannin. Winemaker Jen Beloz took no prisoners when crafting this consumer friendly gem. Enjoy with brised beef dishes, a personal fave, osso buco. Tasted February 2016. 91+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
This is the magnum size of this wine from Huneeus Vintners, equivalent to two regular bottles. The regular size is also part of this release. The 2014 vintage of the Californian Proprietary Red Blend The Prisoner is a red wine blend of 44% Zinfandel, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petite Sirah grapes, with small amounts of Syrah, Grenache and Charbono. Winemaker Jen Beloz originally made Zinfandel for 10 years with Joel Peterson of Ravenswood. - Community Wine Reviews
