2006 The Prisoner Wine Co. 'The Prisoner' Napa Valley

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) The wine has a deep ruby red hue that is framed in rich crimson. Aromas of black cherry and plum, surrounded by roasted coffee beans and vanillin oak accents. The entry is powerful and lush with flavors of bing cherry, blueberry and cocoa. Soft and velvety tannins round out the finish making this wine approachable and inviting.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Orin Swift's Prisoner is a rich, fruit forward wine with the ripe berry characteristics and balanced structure of previous vintages. Aromatically it may be the most complex and evolved vintage at this stage. The nose of this delicious wine is sweet ripe, quietly smoky and very attractively fruity, as hints of licorice root, black tea, vanilla and coffee toffee meld seamlessly with dark cherry, plum and blackberry scents in a forward and engaging mix. The wine is every bit as charming on the palate, where the creamy vanilla, toffee and black tea notes are reprised while the flavors shift toward pomegranate and red raspberry.
