2006 Orin Swift "The Prisoner" Napa Valley Red Blend

SKU #1034130 91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark It's rare that a Zin has this much structure and finesse. Offers appealing aromas of plum, pepper and tobacco, with focused, layered wild berry, pencil lead and sage flavors. A hint of rusticity on the tannins suggests that there's no hurry to drink. *Highly Recommended* (JL) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

K&L Notes

The 2005 Prisoner was listed as #17 in the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2007. This vintage of Orin Swift's "The Prisoner" is a blend of 51% Zinfandel, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Syrah, 6% Charbono, 6% Petite Sirah, and 2% Grenache. At the new-release tasting event at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) "The Prisoner" was the subject of a lot of buzz, with the consensus being that the 2006 vintage was the best Prisoner that winemaker David Phinney had produced to date. Using fruit sourced from top vineyard sites, including Tofanelli and Duarte Vineyards, the blend is designed to showcase the best of all the varietals in the assemblage. The concentration of Cabernet, the lush berry flavors of Zinfandel, the dark black fruit of Syrah, and the structure and intensity of Petite Sirah all work wonderfully together to create a wine that is decadent and complex.
