Imagine date night.
Imagine that you’re sitting in a cool little wine dive in south Texas and the sommelier offers you a sample of a delicious red wine. My true weakness…
Imagine taking a small sip of wine and immediately asking the waiter for a bottle (or two) to take home. I don’t remember the date after this wine, it was that good.
That’s not entirely true. I remember that the date was with my husband.
And I remember The Prisoner…
2010 The Prisoner
A blend of zinfandel, cab, syrah, petite syrah, charbono and grenache. Expertly blended into a deep rich red wine that tastes fruity and then oaky. I’ve always liked a wine that makes your mouth dry almost as soon as it crosses your tongue and The Prisoner does just that.
It has a fruity nose. I think it favors raspberry and black currant.
It opens up and becomes even more full-bodied after a few minutes to breathe.
It’s color is almost inky. This is not a wine for chardonnay lovers. It is a rich, deep flavor. It has a powerful aroma that makes each sip incredible. A true red wine aficionado will sip slowly, savor slowly and refill quickly.
I give this one a 5 out of 5.
If anyone needs me I’ll be finishing the bottle and waiting for my anniversary presents.
