Winemaker's Notes

The 2009 marks the first vintage bottled by The Prisoner's new owner, Huneeus Vintners. We are very pleased to be working with the Huneeus family and look forward to many successful harvests together.

This vintage has a deep ruby hue that is nearly opaque. The aromas elevate from the glass starting with black currant, dark blackberry, cherry, and cassis rounded out by subtle hints of seasoned French and American oak. The entry of the wine is massive and leads into a lush middle framed by bright acid and supple tannins. The finish is long, lingering and filled with soft velvety tannins lasting for nearly thirty seconds.

Served at a BBQ with friends, who went completely over the moon for it. Where did I get it? Where can they find it? Probably the best wine I had all year. Bold taste, lots of fruit, and managed to balance itself across all the parts of the tongue. So delightful. As an Hispanophile, I thought Goya's Prisoner as a label made it all the more attractive.

Learn About The Prisoner Wine Company

The Prisoner Founder and Winemaker Dave Phinney"s deep respect for the vineyards is rooted in an early attempt to make a sophisticated wine from a difficult site. Although he was frustrated by a situation that had him using every tool at his disposal and still coming up short, he learned lessons that inform his vineyard selection process now. I came away from that experience...

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
