The Prisoner 2006

The famous Napa Zin-based blend finally makes an appearance. I have been meaning to try this wine ever since I first sipped it at Napa's Bounty Hunter wine store over a year ago. And, I am pleased to report that this new vintage is even better than the last.

Peppery blackberry jam and plum filled the nose and palate. This was integrated and balanced, despite a reasonably high ABV. The flavours are intense and excellently structured against each other, with a long finish and smooth tannins.
$50 at BCLDB
