The nose is a pleasant blend of red fruit, strawberries, plum, green grass and tar. The taste is very jammy up front, with rich fruit, plum, blackberry and strawberry that transitioned to some dusty limestone and smoke midpalate. The finish was smooth and very dry, with a smoky accent that lingered for a good while.

There are 20,000 cases of the 2012 The Prisoner, which is an interesting blend of 46% Zinfandel, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon,18% Petite Sirah, 12% Syrah, and a small amount of Charbono. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a big, peppery, meaty, Rhone-like bouquet with hints of bay leaf, unsmoked cigar tobacco, black currants and sweet jammy cherries. Medium to full-bodied and explosively fruity, this is a lovely, hedonistic, seriously endowed red to drink over the next 3–4 years.

Ripe, jammy and sweet, this is loaded with toasty oak. Subtle this is not, loaded with flavor, offering notes of black cherry, chocolate, licorice and cinnamon spice. Should appeal to fans of the style. Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Charbono. Drink now through 2018.

The wine has a deep ruby red hue that is framed in rich crimson. Aromas of black cherry and plum, surrounded by roasted co ee beans and vanillin oak accents. The entry is powerful and lush with flavors of bing cherry, blueberry and cocoa. Soft and velvety tannins round out the finish making this wine approachable and inviting. - Jen Beloz, WinemakerThe blend:46% Zinfandel22% Cabernet Sauvignon18% Petite Sirah12% Syrah2% CharbonoAging: 30% New Oak, Combination of French and American Oak Barrels ** Only 12 in Stock **

Inky ruby. Heady cherry and blackcurrant scents are complicated by smoky herbs pipe tobacco potpourri and dusty minerals. Broad and pliant offering palate-staining dark berry preserve flavors given lift and bite by a spicecake quality. Sweet and velvety on the relentless finish which leaves candied cherry and mineral notes behind. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

More rich and layered with thrilling aromas and flavors of blueberry blackberry licorice crushed stone lavender and underbrush the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin will most likely be the wine of the vintage. Compared to the 1989 by Marc Perrin it is full-bodied and massively constructed with a deep layered mid-palate stunning purity and massive structure that

Winemaker's Notes:

The Prisoner truly is... "one of a kind". When Dave Phinney (founder) launched the wine in 2003, there really was no other wine like it. Inspired and created by the drinkable "mixed blacks" first made by the Italian immigrants who originally settled in the Napa Valley, it was innovative and unique. In the late '90s a handful of Napa producers took an interest in making this style of wine. The blend soon began to incorporate not only Zinfandel, but also Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Charbono, and Grenache.
