The Prisoner on Snooth

  • I've had one taste of The Prisoner, ever.  It was at a wine bar in N. Calif., with some customers.  I'm pretty sure this was in 2010--based on the fact that I was working with this customer in the year before I was laid off.  So, I'm sure the vintage date on that wine was something like 2008 or 2007.  I enjoyed it--mostly, because the bank SVP o...

  • Orin Swift "The Prisoner" Napa Valley Red Blend 2009


    Structured and layered, and well beyond it's supposed prime, this was great. Blackberry, dustiness, spice, dark cherry, mocha with tolerable tannins and great acidity. Just shows what cellaring properly can do. 92 points - drink now - Paul Read More

  • We had a meeting today to finalize (as best we could) the 2017 Northwoods Wine ... Orin Swift Red Wine "The Prisoner"  - Here, the blend is the difference,  with cabby, syrah, petite sirah, carbono added to the zin.  As a result there are, obviously, different layers and aromas.  However, the same blackberry and dark cherry are both present an...
