I’m caught up in the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and the onset of fall, and I need a BIG red wine.

Something deep. Something dark. Something soothing. Something velvety.

There’s nothing more appropriate than The Prisoner Cabernet Sauvignon from California’s Napa Valley.

From the moment it hits the glass you’re in deep, with bold notes of rich dark cherry and blackberry on the nose. One sip and you want to sink in the experience. Smooth, luscious, ripe, beautifully balanced, full of dark berry and smooth tannins.

This is a wine that is really special, and really worth it (around $50/bottle).

Check out their story at theprisonerwinecompany.com. Sometimes you need a reminder to live big and be grateful.

To your health, everyone.
