Thankful Thursday ~ We Were Taken Prisoner

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

An etching "La Petite Prisonier" by Spanish artist, Francisco Jose de Goya, inspired wine maker Dave Pinney for his label of his award-winning wine, "The Prisoner."

I liked the Wine Geek review "It is a hedonistic blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet, Syrah, Petite Syrah, a kitchen sink, Grenache and a steering wheel from a '68 Cuda!"  LOL!!  Geno and I shared a bottle and I highly recommend it!

Hi Dorie: Were you and Geno imprisoned for a brief time by the alchohol?  I don't know what Cuda is but the Wine Geek's review gives an interesting description of the wine. This is where google comes in handy.

Dorie, Labeling on wine does impact a buying decision. I'm liking red blends these days.  I'm sensing that I may like The Prisoner.

Hi Dorie.  Interesting name and painting.  Is it a red or a white?  Thanks.

Dorie I don't think I have ever seen a wine mixture like that.  Do they have one without the kitchen sink??? :)

Interesting Dorie.  Not much of a wine drinker but with that blend I'm going to see if we have it around here.

Dorie, I love the review of a great wine...I am always trying reds that are not too dry...I have expensive taste but you live once right?!  Love to try this one.

Good Friday morning Dorie Dillard -

Thanks for the share.  Debbie and I plan on going to the adult beverage store today and look for a good and new bottle of grapes.  I'm ready for a good change on the taste-buds.

Hi Dorie -- I'd say the only ingredient the marketing team behind The Prisoner didn't include was lots of whimsy.  Cheers!

I am attracted by pretty bottle designs too. This one has a very whimsy design.
