Considered to be one of the greatest success stories in modern-day wine, The Prisoner was launched in 2000 by Orin Swift founder, Dave Phinney who saw tremendous potential in California outside of the two most popular grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
Making a modern version of a ‘field blend’ Phinney chose to make a Zinfandel dominant blend with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Charbono serving as the backbone. To call it a hit, would almost be doing it an injustice.
The Prisoner absolutely EXPLODED on the scene. With a unique burst of flavor and a fruit forward style that can only be compared to the wines the Caymus Family is able to produce, the Prisoner became a critic darling, earning multiple appearances in Wine Spectator’s ‘Top 100 Wines of the Year’ list.
