An opaque core with a red amethyst rim, the wine opens with ripe raspberry and blackberry, dark plum preserves and hints of black pepper and clove. An entry of heft, the palate is packed with blueberry and sweet black cherry along with touch of fresh herbs-thyme, savory and tarragon. Long on the finish, the ripe tannins, a dash of ash, and notes of black tea round out the wine.

Made by Dave Phinney with very limited old vines grapes from fruit sources of original Prisoner from before Phinney sold the Prisoner brand. A blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Syrah and Grenache.
