Drink now or cellar for up to 18 years. Decanting is not needed.

The inspiration for the varietals blended into the wine stems from the Italian immigrants who originally worked the lands of Napa Valley. Back then the blend was referred to as the “mixed blacks” and consists of a collection of the darkest grapes grown in the area.

On the nose are notes of dark chocolate, cherry, roasted fig and a clove sizzle. The blend of grapes produced a wild blend of red and dark fruit on the palate: Pomegranate, boysenberry and raspberry to name a few. The wine is aged in a mixture of French and American oak barrels with only 30% of them being new. This allows the fruit to sing, provides tannins that are fine and soft, and adds a subtle spice most noticeable with the vanilla on the finish.

Due to the blend of many varietals, the wine is a crowd pleaser. It makes a perfect wine for hosting a dinner party or for the obligatory gift that you need to bring to a party. It will pair with many different red meat dishes, sharp cheeses and will be delicious on its own.

The Prisoner Wine Company sources grapes from top vineyards all over California. They look to change the status quo by using alternative winemaking methods and blending unique varietals together.
