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.
