Orin Swift Cellars-The Prisoner-Zinfandel-Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah-Petite Sirah-Charbono-Grenache-Napa Valley-California-2007-15.2% Alcohol-$34.99-A nose of cherry vanilla coke and spice, dark garnet in color.  A medium to full bodied kitchen sink blend, with black cherry, blueberries, raspberries and some spice on finish.  The nose is amazing if you like rich vanilla but wine has lost it’s edge, still good but not as bold as it was a couple years ago.          RP-90          WS-92 (#47 WS Top 100 of 2009)          CR-90          Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
