Happy Friday to all and hope everyone has wonderful plans for the Weekend! I am writing this excerpt to give my 2 cents on a wine they call “The Prisoner” by Orin Swift. This is the second time I have been conned into buying this wine after person after person, who have all somehow been brainwashed by Extraterrestrial beings, are convinced “The Prisoner” is the second coming; I am going to cut to the chase on this topic. “The Prisoner” is a nauseating fruit bomb that has so much infested oak influence that it reeks like a big block of rancid wood. Why so much oak? What does “The Prisoner” have to hide?
This is absolutely the most overrated wine on the market at almost $40 a bottle, but if you do chose to try Orin Swift wines, try his Saldo Zinfandel for the same price point. It is absolutely an awesome, rich, full bodied Zin and will not disappoint. Keep Believing and Keep Drinking.
