Napa Valley Zinfandel Blend 2019

Finally bit the bullet on this and decided to splurge. This is a big, bold wine that would pair so beautifully with some meat. It's got a lot of cocoa and chocolate notes alongside some dark fruit. It's complex and also showcases some leather and some oak. It's balanced, it's not too sweet and shows lots of tannins. — 17 days ago

Blindfold California Chardonnay Blend 2017

9.0

The 17’ seems to have high percentage of Chard (I believe it’s normally around 30-35%) than the previous vintages I tasted. Stone fruits dominants the fruit profile and it feels more buttery, though aromatics and texture still shows some characters of the Rhone varieties. Quite nice still. — 3 months ago

Saldo California Zinfandel 2018

Distinguishable California Orin Swift: quality, precision, and subtle elegance. Yes! I know the difference and sell-off between The Prisoner Wine Company and Orin Swift, but in wine as in all else, roots are roots, right?

Medium purple color. The nose is expressive with jammy drak and red berry scents, as well as cinnamon, sweet tobacco and dry herbs. On the fore-pallet there is blackberry jam, plum sauce, strawberry, and raisin; on the mid-palate there is hibiscus, nutmeg and vanilla. The finish has slowly vanishing jammy flavors with slowing gripping tannins. This is bold and high alcohol; so don't be fooled by the smooth, soft, and low acidity characteristics.

Well above average California Zif, that's for sure!. Paired with PF Changs Mongolian Beef. Cheers.

Unshackled Cabernet Sauvignon

Not as big as the original Prisoner, but great for the price point—can buy 2 bottles! Takes some time to open, but once it does, it’s smooth with tobacco and spice flavors, and a full finish. — 2 days ago
