Definitely a crowd pleaser as the prisoner often is. Zinfandel-power and hedonistic - spicy and forward but not flabby. I enjoyed other things that afternoon better but this was solid and paired great with lamb and other meaty things.

Plush dark berry fruit, but the wine is soft, with little structure

Nicely done, Upfront red fruit shines through. Not that much depth yet, but good medium finish

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
