"Bold aromas of black cherry and plum are heightened by hints of oak and Madagascar vanilla. A soft and velvety palate of anise, dark cocoa powder and roasted sage lead into a dense finish with luscious tannins." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
The Prisoner is a "kitchen-sink" blend, so-called because of the unconventional number of different grape types that make it into the final blend. Taking a cue from the old Italian wines known as "mixed blacks," The Prisoner updates the idea with Napa character, with a density that struts alongside elegance in this 2014. The raspberry and dark cherry aromas take charge, allowing hints of vanilla and pepper spice to show through, leading to gobs of rich fruit and chewy tannins to close out each sip.
