The Prisoner Wine Co. ‘Blindfold’ 2012: A blend of Viognier, Rousanne, Marsanne, Chardonnay, Sémillion and Riesling, this medium- to full-bodied white explodes with honeyed notes of Anjou pear, mandarin, and lemon zest, and finishes with a creamy and balanced acidity. Region: California. Price: $34.99. Goes with: Your favorite shellfish, Tilapia, Cod, halibut, seafood salad, paella or roasted chicken. Why we chose it: Part Rhone-style white, with some new world California ideas mixed in. It’s hard to find a wine with this much flavor, that is also in balance. Each sip brings you something new!
This is Bottle No. 10 in our 10th series.

For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case chosen by Tracy Maxon and J.J. Berlingo of Varmax Liquor Pantry..
