Inaugural Release of Derange Red Blend from Prisoner Wine Co. Extremely Limited.
A new red blend from the folks behind the popular Prisoner wine. This rich, peddle-to-the-metal red explodes with a melange of dark berry, chocolate, and brown sugar aromas. The super lush palate packs quite a wallop with more of the same berry flavors. If you're a fan of The Prisoner, consider this its big brother.
Derange Red is a new wine from Dave Phinney's Prisoner Wine Group. An amazing blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Sirah. Rich and enticing aromas of blackberry, vanilla bean, baking spices, dark chocolate, and caramel. The palate is overly luscious and giving with notesof dark cherry and blueberry leading to an opulent, velvety finish.
Fantastic new Zinfandel from the The Prisoner Wine Co! Extremely limited new release - get your allocation before it sells out.
Saldo is a delicious blend of Zinfandel & Petite Sirah. Through the success of the Prisoner label, the winery has gained access to some of the best Zinfandel vineyards in Nothern California and made a high quality Zinfandel that doesn't fit the constraints of a single appelation. The result? SALDO.
93 Points Brix26: "The Saldo has a dark ruby color and intense aromas of dark cherry, cocoa powder and baking spice. The entry is rich and full, and leads into a broad mid palate with concentration and density, backed by lively acidity. The texture is soft and the tannins are polished. The finish is long with persistent notes of chocolate, berry and vanilla bean."
The new Prisoner white wine! A delicious white blend that will be here for a short time only.
This marks just the second vintage for the Prisoner Wine Company's winemaker Jen Beloz. Jen worked with Dave Phinney in the transition of the Prisoner and Saldo for the 2011 vintage and is responsible for the beautiful new upcoming 2012 vintage of Prisoner and Saldo on her own. She comes to the project with extensive zinfandel pedigree after having worked for 10 years with Joel Peterson at Ravenswood, while working toward a Master's degree in Enology. Jen's first creation on her own is the delicious Blindfold white wine blend. It has a California appellation with fruit sourced from the Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Paso Robles and Santa Ynez. The blend is unique; using primarily Chardonnay (35%) and classic Rhone whites, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne and Grenache Blanc, with a small percentage of Riesling and Semillon to bring out the aromatics. The wine has beautiful aromas of tropical fruit, baked apple and pear, incredible richness while maintaining acidity and freshness.
90 Points Robert Parker: "A blend of 30% Chardonnay, 20% Viognier, 20% Roussanne and the balance Grenache Blanc, Chenin Blanc and a few other grapes, the 2013 Proprietary White Blindfold is close in quality to the brilliant 2012 I reviewed last year. Reminiscent of some of Sine Qua Non’s white wines from California’s Central Coast, the 2013 is more zesty, and plays it closer to the vest, but it offers lovely notes of fresh pineapple, tangerine skins, orange marmalade, melon and honeysuckle. I wish more California wineries would consider using such innovative blends as this given the high quality that can result. This beauty should be enjoyed over the next several years....This brand was first created by Orin Swift, but is now run by winemaker Jen Beloz and David Phinney. The wines’ impressive labels reflect the innovative and creative nature of this wine company."
Brand new Chardonnay release from the Prisoner Wine Co: introducing The Snitch Chardonnay.
Leave it to The Prisoner Wine Company to bottle such a provocative, bombastic Chardonnay from Oak Knoll and Carneros, blended with a touch of Roussanne. The Snitch Chardonnay is a big, roomy, and sweet-fruited, this has notes of grilled pineapple, yellow plum, and ripe figs, and it will pair beautifully with something simple but decadent.
