At the beginning of October, a friend of mine was looking to buy a bottle of The Prisoner and could not find it. This happened to another friend as the month wore on. They didn’t have long to wait, because this label releases a new vintage each year on Halloween. I was so excited to try it. The person who introduced all of us to it was lucky enough to go to a Prisoner release party. (Courtney!) How fun would that be? That will be added to the list of things to try. Another good thing to try is Thorn, also made by The Prisoner Wine Company for which Courtney was able to try at this party. It’s a blend of Merlot, Syrah and Malbec. The wine was described as deep purple in color with hints of cedar, lead pencil and black cherry. Yum!
I recently tried the 2014 Prisoner and was so happy to see that it’s still the same smooth, flavorful wine as it was the last time I had it over the summer. With Friday the 13th coming up, I think it’s appropriate to grab a bottle of this and drink it if only for good luck. 😉
