2018 THE PRISONER PROPRIETARY BLEND
With a wine as popular and recognizable as the The Prisoner, it can be a challenge to surpass expectations and a raise the bar that’s been set so high. The new 2018 Prisoner did exactly that… Our veteran tasting panel has been tasting Prisoner since their inaugural vintage, and every one of us agreed wholeheartedly that this was their best ever. The 2018 unshackles a gang of intense blue fruits, chocolate dipped raspberries, liquid violets and boysenberry. The wine is balanced, charming and chock-full of intriguing fruits and earthly hedonism. The sheer quality is unmistakeable this year, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this vintage sells out at record pace. You may want to lock yours up before the scores are released…
A glass-staining, deep, dense bluish/purple in color, the 2018 Prisoner is from a gang of top vineyard sites throughout Napa Valley, including Korte Ranch in St. Helena and Tiedemann Ranch in Yountville. Each distinct vineyard block adds its own unique dimension, helping to complete the uniquely complex flavors that we have come to love and expect from The Prisoner. I strongly recommend stocking up on the 2018… You’ll be glad you did.
