Note: this is the equivalent of 8 full bottles. This hand etched, private bottling is a once in a lifetime offer for very thirsty, very special occasions. Literally, a �dream bottling� for any Prisoner fan! Prisoner Tasting Notes: "Begins with rich aromas of fresh fruit that entice you to dive into this sultry wine. Loaded with dark blackberry, plums, a plethora of exotic spices and hints of smoky oak and caramel that are perfectly balanced for a delightfully big and rich experience at a delightfully easy to swallow price. This 2006 vintage is even smoother in texture and more complex in deep, dark red fruit flavors than the previous vintages. If you liked the Prisoner blend 2005 you will ADORE this new release because it�s an even more serious and age-worthy red wine to enjoy over the next five years. Wow!� Hal Oates, Porthos.com

now this is a red to get your hands around as it gets around you Good Value for the money
This may just be the best wine I've tasted. Branham Jazz is right up there as well as the 2002 Silver Oak Cab but for $35-40 you simply won't find a better wine. Very rich, complex, more chocolate than fruit, simply outstanding.
This is my fovorite wine - no other wine seems to change so much from opening the bottle and the first pour to an hour later (or so) when I'm finishing the bottle. This wine is a regular in my celler and goes well with or without food. It's extrememly versatile in pairing with almost anything.
We first discovered this wine in a restaurant in Denver Co. What a delight! This is one of the most delicious reds I have ever tasted. Bold, full & rich in the mouth, but so smooth in the finish! A personal favorite for special gathering.
Among my top 5 favorite bottles ever, at any price.
Very bold. Very delicious.
External Reviews for Orin Swift Prisoner Imperial
There's a clarity to the red cherry scent of this wine, and the flavor follows through, clean and bright. Smoke, stones, and tannin emerge only in the end. Cellar to play up those notes; drink now with duck for pure holiday pleasure.
As I stated last year, there is no Hommage a Jacques Perrin in 2006, but Beaucastel’s 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet perfume of black truffles, camphor, earth, incense, new saddle leather, and loads of peppery, blackberry, and herb-infused, meaty, black cherry fruit. Deep, full-bodied, and dense, with sweet tannin, this explosively rich Chateauneuf is a stronger effort than the 2005, 2004, or 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2028.
This is a beautiful wine, holding a perfect balance between bright, fresh fruit and savory notes of leather and spice. The blackberry flavors have a cool, foresty feel; the minerality runs deep, as smooth and overt as the galets that pave Beaucastel’s vineyards. It’s completely welcoming right now, especially with a rack of lamb.
Red wine 2006 Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape France Region: Rh Free Shipping Insurance
Ruby-red. Blackberry and cassis on the nose, with a complex set of earth, herb and floral qualities adding complexity. Deep and sweet, with bitter cherry and candied licorice flavors and youthfully firm tannins but no hardness. Turns more lively on the finish, picking up a spicy red berry character and leaving a long, pungent herbal trail behind. This needs time. "It's the opposite of a bimbo wine," Perrin offered.
The outstanding 2006 Beaucastel Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet Blanc (equal parts Viognier, Marsanne, and Bourboulenc with 10% Clairette added for aromatics) is outstanding, one of the best versions of this wine I have tasted. It is dry, medium-bodied, wit... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2006 Chateau Beaucastel Coudoulet de Beaucastel Cotes du Rhone Blanc 750ml
One of the great successes of the vintage and certainly better than their 2003 is Beaucastel's 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape. Deep ruby/purple in color with loads of licorice, smoked game, black cherry and blackberry fruit, along with incense and truffle, the wine has fabulous richness, high tannin, medium to full body, and beautiful length, richness, and purity. This is a beauty and one of the vintage's finest wines. Give it 4-6 years of bottle age and drink it over the next 25+ years. It has the potential to be one of the longest-lived Chateauneuf du Papes of the vintage.
