Natalie's Score: 91/100
Very high alcohol on this wine, but it has the fruit heft to handle it. A robust, layered Californian red wine of solid structure and concentration. Pair with hamburgers or steak.
Food pairings: gourmet hamburgers, rare rib steak, venison tenderloin.

|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

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.
|Christian Marcoux reviewed this wine as follows:|
I just released the Prisoner and my oh my!! This deeeep purple wine has charming aromas of dark skin plum, ripe dark cherry and fig; add to this a touch of rose and leather. In the mouth, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla, pepper, cigar box and oak all come together in a well-balanced manner. This silky and rich magical blend shows 15,2% alc with elegance and harmony.
I really enjoyed and loved this wine!
|"This big and robust Californian red is a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah with small amounts of Syrah, Grenache and Charbono (Bonarda) added. 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. Very high alcohol on this wine, but it has the fruit heft to handle it. Pair with big, red meat. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews|
