Wine: The Prisoner 2011
Country: United States
This is currently my new favorite red. It is a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Charbono. The kicker is the Charbono, which was made briefly famous as a single bottling by Inglenook back in the 1970”s. This red offers style and structure with wild berry, cracked pepper and mocha flavors. A “drink me now” wine, it will hold you prisoner, believe me! P.S. this label has just been purchased by Agustin Huneeus, the owner of Quintessa.
