The Prisoner Wine Company
You may be familiar with one of the best-selling California red wines on the market, The Prisoner, created by The Prisoner Wine Company.
The Prisoner Wine Company—named for the iconic wine originally made by founding winemaker Dave Phinney—makes much more than just The Prisoner red wine.
Indeed, The Prisoner Wine Company produces a wide range of red and white wines, and even a Rosè called Syndrome.
One of my favorite wines from The Prisoner Wine Company is Blindfold 2017 California White Wine ($30).
As with all of The Prisoner Wine Company products, this one has an impressionistic story which helps explain the blindfolded man tied to a tree on the bottle label: “They thought if he couldn’t see the world, then he wouldn’t make his mark. But a blindfold won’t hold him back. It just heightens his other senses. And whether they like it or not, his resilience will leave a lasting impression.”
This wine will leave a lasting impression, as well—an interesting blend of white wine grapes including Chardonnay, Roussanne, Viognier, and Muscat. It’s a unique California-meets-Southern France marriage of classic California Chardonnay and aromatic Rhône varietals.
This is a bold and beautiful wine, with fragrant notes of citrus, peach, and lychee leading to a creamy, rich mouthfeel—a truly delicious wine to enliven any summer outing.
