A nice wine from Orin Swift. This is a blend of Zinfandel and a handful of other grapes. Had very nice undertones of earth and stone with some big fruit and a touch of residual sugar. Definitely a bold wine, and though we drank it without food, I suspect this would hold up well almost any type of beef. Again, not great but definitely not bad.

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.

Saturated ruby. Heady expansive aromas of black and blue fruit liqueur potpourri and incense with smoky Indian spices emerging with air. Juicy strikingly intense blackberry and blueberry flavors are complicated by notes of minerals and candied violet with a subtle peppery quality adding bite. Velvety tannins give shape to the extremely long spicy penetrating finish with the floral note echoing. This stunning palate-staining wine gets my vote as the best Chateauneuf of its vintage. S

Killer deal! Free Shipping when you order a case of 6 Bottles! Excellent as a gift, or if you feel like spoiling yourself this holiday season make sure to get a 6 pack case of Orin Swift Prisoner.

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.

Only made in top vintages and a blend of roughly 60% (or more) Mourvedre and the rest a mix of other permitted varieties the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin is a cellar selection that always comes from the same plot of vines. A massive powerful wine with serious amounts of extract and concentration it slowly gives up gamey complex (and heavenly) notes of blueberry blackberry blood licorice garrigue and smoke. This flows to a full-bodied layered and brilliantly texture

Winemaker's Notes:

Dunkles, konzentriertes Rubinrot, finessenreicher, intensiver Duft nach dunklen Beeren, schwarzen Kirschen, Himbeeren und Provencekräutern mit rauchigen Anklängen. Unverkennbar Beaucastel mit dem hier typischen «Goût de terroir», einem Duft nach feuchter Erde, Pfeffer, Tabak, gegrilltem Fleisch, Himbeere und viel Würze. Schmeckt kraftvoll, intensiv, ungemein fruchtbetont, mit samtigen, perfekt reifen Tanninen. Der Wein setzt bei aller Komplexität und Länge immer auch seinen Fokus auf Saftigkeit, Eleganz und pure Finesse.
