Holiday Wines from Prisoner Wine Company

Finding the perfect wine for the holiday season might be easier said than done, but Payless Liquors can help you find a wine for the occasion. This month we welcomed two new wines to our stores from The Prisoner Wine Company Winery. Prisoner Wines offer a burst of flavor that will compliment any holiday celebration.

Prisoner Wines are truly one-of-a-kind wines launched in 2003 by Dave Phinney. Dave was inspired by the “mixed black” blends first made by Italian immigrants, who settled in the Napa Valley. The wines produced by Prisoner Wines are innovative and unique in their own respects. In order to cultivate this distinct blend, growers pay careful attention to the complex foundation of the relationships between the different grapes. Grapes are acquired from more than 80 vineyards in exclusive regions of Napa Valley.

Currently Prisoner Wines has a collection of four: The Prisoner, Blindfold, Cuttings and Saldo. In Payless Liquors stores we are carrying the Blindfold and Cuttings bottles.


A bold and intriguing white wine blend, Blindfold was created on a Chardonnay base and evokes fresh flavors of lemon zest, pear and mandarin orange. Hints of roasted marshmallow, spiced apple tart and pineapple are also present. Enjoy a creamy, yet rich and balanced overall taste.


Reminiscent of its name, Cuttings is a deep red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel. Indulge in its powerful and structured profile, with intense smells of dark fruit, black cherry, spice and cedar. Expect a rich and dense flavor, with hints of ripe plum, red berries and dark chocolate.

Cuttings and Blindfold will make the perfect addition to the table at any holiday celebration. You can find the wines at select Payless Liquors stores, or you can reserve a bottle on our website.

Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
