Review: The Prisoner 2012

The Prisoner Wine Company’s  2012 red blend, is a mouth full of explosive fruit.


It is not a subtle wine but and in-your-face red a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Savignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Charbon. Its bold with hints of black cherry, cinnamon and chocolate.

This is a family favorite. In fact, each Christmas my husband treats the family to a magnum bottle for the table at Christmas dinner. (In case you’re unfamiliar with wine bottle sizes, a magnum bottle is 1.5L or 2 bottles of wine.) To say the least, it makes quite the centerpiece.

At around $40 a bottle and 89 points, this is a bottle to reserve for special occasions. Although, its just fine to serve it along side a juicy burger or even pizza. Hey, who said special occasions call for fancy shmancy food.

Enjoy…and until next time, cheers!
