2004 Orin Swift Cellars "The Prisoner" Napa Red Blend

SKU #1018642

Break free! Unshackle yourselves from the bonds that hold you to meaningless traditions of monotonous, single-varietal wines that cost an arm and a leg and deliver the same lack-luster, predictable results. If this is your first time in, be prepared to get WOWed by the intense dark berry fruit and long, rich finish with tannins that are velvety soft. If you enjoyed the 2002 and 2003 (and many MANY of you did!), this one's also a blend (including zinfandel, cabernet, syrah, petite sirah and charbono. Unabashedly high in alcohol, you will feel its authority. But the massive fruit is more than powerful enough to handle the heat. Are you?

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Monterey/Carmel Valley

- These heavily planted regions on either side of the vast Salinas Valley account for much of the mass-produced, commercial wine sold in supermarkets nationwide. In the hills, however, and in sub-AVAs like Chalone and Santa Lucia Highlands, quality is much higher. Pinot noir and chardonnay look to be particularly promising.
