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: beef.

|Meg Charette - WSET ADV rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:|
The Prisoner 2014 sits dense, deep ruby purple in the glass with slow trickling legs. On the nose a pleasingly overwhelming complexity of aromas to entice that first sip. Plenty of stewed dark fruit; black cherry, raspberry, blueberry, along with baking spices, milk chocolate, caramel and a subtle grape candied note. On the palate aromas are mirrored, full bodied with a luscious, rich, dense texture that lingers into a long finish still showing notes of white pepper and baking spices. Well balanced acidity with incredibly soft velvety tannins. Such a dense rich wine may over power many dishes. May pair well with a rich pronounced cheese plate.
|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.
