Named as a finalist for Wine Enthusiast's "Winery Experience of the Year" The Prisoner Wine Company creates unique experiences in their tasting lounge as well as their individual wines by challenging expectations and unraveling conformity. Located in the heart of Napa Valley along Highway 29, Prisoner has a set group of growers that they source their grapes from. Many of these growers are families which are on their third and fourth generations of farmers with some of the sites being 80 to 100 years old. Therefore, many of these sites can lay claim to the varietals in the Unshackled Red Blend. A blend of predominantly Zinfandel followed by Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Grenache results in a well-structured and balanced wine that is complex yet intense. Grapes from the north and central coast of California are barrel aged in French and American oak casks for 10 months before bottling. Powerful aromas of ripe raspberry, baked blueberry and crushed violets lead into a deep palate of mulled spices, dried cherries, and nuances of white pepper. Finishing long and rich with pronounced spices and warm jammy dark fruits on the backnotes. The vineyard suggests refrigerating this up to 30 minutes to serve just below room temperature. Enjoy on its own or pair with hearty dishes that are braised, roasted, and grilled.
