Food Pairings for Orin Swift Zinfandel Blend Napa Valley the Prisoner
Ripe, wild, lush berries that linger & mix with oak & black tea accents. Bright acidity. Since this is a mix, there is more acidity than a normal zin, so don't be shy to pair with heavier meals. If anything one might err on going with light pairings, and get put off by acid.
You are amazing Mr. Prisoner. You are that boyfriend or girlfriend all single people seek to meet. You are deep, complex, and spicy hot. After one date with you, most wine, especially in your price range, just pale in comparison. Blackberry, spice and without fault you are guaranteed to be love at first sight for anyone lucky enough to spend around $30 odd dollars to take you home.
Yummy! Smoother, don't get hit with peppery taste. More fruity than spicy.
I only recently got more into drinking and rating wine, and this is the bottle that got me into it. It blew my mind. The deep complex blend of reds was the most amazing wine I have every tasted.
Delicious, complex, deep, and cavernous. Like bunny's favorite hiding places.
Had this on Febriary 18 and had to refuse it, even after decanting. The 2010 vintage is nowhere close to the quality of earlier vintages like '05 and '08. No real mouth feel on the start and absolutely no tannin on the finish. Exceptionally disappointing for what has been a solid zin/cab blend in recent years.
External Reviews for Orin Swift Zinfandel Blend Napa Valley the Prisoner
Dunkles Granat. Explosiver Beginn: Himbeermark, Amarena, flüssige dunkle Schokolade, geröstete Feigen und reife Pflaumen, dahinter Heidelbeerkompott und betörende rote Rosen sowie karamellisierte Mandeln, grossartige Tiefe und sehr komplex. Am Gaumen mit perfekt ausgereifte Tanninen, leicht stützend, druckvolle Fruchtsüsse, wirkt wie ein Amarone mit viel Finesse, verschwenderische Fruchtaromen nach Holundergelée, Toffeenote, Espresso, Granatapfel und betörende Korinthensüsse bis ins lange anhaltende Finale.
Dark purple core with a ruby rim. Aromas of both black and bing cherry intertwine with notes of roasted coffee, shitake and a touch of mint on a sweetly perfumed nose. Soft and luscious on entry, the prominent fruit is supported by fine tannins which... Alex Shaw. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2011 Orin Swift The Prisoner Proprietary Red Wine 3000ml
This vintage has a deep ruby hue that is nearly opaque. The aromas elevate from the glass starting with black currant, dark blackberry, cherry, and cassis rounded out by subtle hints of seasoned French and American oak. The entry of the wine is massive and leads into a lush middle framed by bright acid and supple tannins. The finish is long, lingering and filled with soft velvety tannins lasting for nearly thirty seconds.
Orin Swift s Proprietary Blend The Prisoner has become the stuff of legend for many of us in the industry. We can never get enough - it always sells out - and (most importantly) the juice in the bottle is fantastic year in and year out.
51% Zinfandel, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, 12% Petite Sirah, 2% Charbono, 1% Grenache. The wine has a dense red and black hue that is framed in vibrant crimson. Aromas of Bing cherry, espresso, roasted fig and vanillin oak accents are persistent. The entry is powerful and generous supported with lively acidity while flavors of ripe raspberry, pomegranate and wild berry fruit linger harmoniously. Soft, integrated tannin chains allow the wine to be approachable now and provides for a pleasant finish. Alcohol 15.2%. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Spectator: ...a bold, rich red blend that's jammed with flavor. Aromas of blackberry and caramel lead to ripe plum, licorice and spicy vanilla flavors. Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Charbono and Grenache. Drink now through 2017.
