TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

A very bold, full-bodied red wine, The Prisoner Red Blend won the 2018 Vivino Wine Style Awards for its 2016 vintage. It remains in the top 1% of wines in the world.

Combining Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Shiraz, Charbono, and Zinfandel, it has a smooth and lush mouthfeel, lovely and rounded. On the nose, its aroma exudes oak and vanilla, with some black cherry and plum. And on the palate, it has notes of sweet, ripe dark fruit, chocolate, tobacco, and vanilla.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

The most recognized Napa Valley red blend, it works well as any traditional red. Cheddar and Gouda are great cheese to have with The Prisoner. Serve on a charcuterie with some cured red meats. Pair with beef, lamb, veal, poultry, and venison for your main course. Try this veal from Ekro, for this exquisite Miyazaki Wagyu.

You can also have a glass of this iconic red blend with any dark chocolate dessert, like a flourless chocolate cake.

NO SHACKLES, NO RULES

The Prisoner Wine Company takes its name from a classic sketch by 19th century Spanish artist, Francisco Goya. It’s called “Le Petit Prisonier,” and is part of a series entitled, “The Disasters of War.” It was created as protest against the injustices and brutalities committed in the Spanish War of Independence in 1808.

The wine company resonated with this piece, as it has stood in support and solidarity with minorities, joining the fight against racism, mass incarceration, and systemic oppression. Committed to education, diversity, and inclusivity, they aim to create an environment that is safe and respectful to their employees and business partners.

The Prisoner Wine Company is known for their blends. And their first release in 2000, also named The Prisoner, skyrocketed to cult status, and sparked a trend in red blends. At the time, blends were virtually unheard of, with winemakers preferring single-grape varietals. The Prisoner literally changed the game. They have since released a number of blends, all as innovative, brave, and bold as the first.

Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
