Orin Swift Cellars-The Prisoner-Red Blend-Napa Valley-California-2008-$34.99-A nose of dark spicy fruit, dark purple in color.  A big full bodied Zin blend, blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, licorice and pepper with a long finish.  I have tried the 2005, 06, 07 and now the 08 and they all have been consistently great, this is very good but not as great as the 05 or 06.             RP-90                 WS-92               CR-90                     Good with ribs, chicken, pasta.
