A New Addition and Old Favorites from the Prisoner Family of Wines!
Created to provide the perfect white wine companion to The Prisoner, Blindfold is equally bold and intriguing. The wine is complex with inviting aromas of honeysuckle, grilled white peach and apricot. A luscious entry of toasted hazelnut and mandarin are balanced by bright acidity and minerality. The finish is rich and creamy with flavors of lemon zest and caramelized sugar. The blend includes Chardonnay, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, and Chenin Blanc. This is the magic of the Rhone Valley from the perfect storm of conditions in California for a rich, full bodied wine suitable for pairing with a huge variety of foods!
The Prisoner was created and inspired by the drinkable “mixed blacks” first made by the Italian immigrants who originally settled in the Napa Valley. Launched in 2003, The Prisoner soon became the most recognized innovative and unique Napa Valley Red Wine blend, leading the resurgence of blends by incorporating Zinfandel with the unlikely “mix” of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Charbono.
Features enticing aromas of Bing cherry, dark chocolate, clove, and roasted fig. Persistent flavors of ripe raspberry, boysenberry, pomegranate, and vanilla linger harmoniously, for a smooth and luscious finish.
Saldo is the prototypical Zinfandel that showcases some of Northern California’s most renowned Zinfandel vineyards and regions. The word “Saldo” is of Latin origin often referring to “from here and there” or in this case, representing our sourcing of Zinfandel from regions “here and there” across Northern California.
We source from California’s oldest, dry-farmed, historic vineyards. These vines are grown in distinct soil types in the cool climates of Sonoma and Mendocino county and stretching inland to the warmer regions of Lodi and the Sierra Foothills. The wine displays a dark ruby color with bold aromas of blackberry, plum and clove. The entry is rich and full, with juicy acidity encircled in flavors of Mexican chocolate, cherry and vanilla extract. There is a voluptuous and persistent finish with smooth tannins.
