“Smooth, fruity and buttery, this full-bodied wine is mouthfilling in texture and generous in flavor. Vanilla, pear and butter aromas carry over to the flavors, adding nuances of almond and hazelnut along with lots of lush fruit.”~JG

“Blindfold is the white wine interpretation and companion to The Prisoner. Blindfold is a full-bodied, richly textured wine with The Prisoner’s signature mouthfeel. It’s a blend made primarily of rich Chardonnay, complimented by Rhône and other white varieties that give the wine lift and aromatics. The resulting wine shows inviting aromas of honeysuckle, grilled white peach, and apricot. A luscious entry of toasted hazelnut and mandarin are balanced by bright acidity and minerality. The finish is rich and creamy with flavors of lemon zest and caramelized sugar
The fruit from this wine is sourced throughout California’s Coastal wine regions. Director and Winemaking, Chrissy Wittmann partners with growers who are dedicated to cultivating unique varieties in the most recognized regions throughout California. The Chardonnay in Blindfold is sourced from Sonoma County, the Chenin Blanc from Mendocino, and the Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Viognier from our growers in Santa Barbara.
The label artwork is based on one of the prints from the "Disasters of War" series by Spanish artist, Francisco de Goya. Similar to the artwork on The Prisoner label, The Blindfold label depicts atrocities of war between France and Spain during the artist’s time.”-Winemaker’s Notes

“The Prisoner Wine Company’s eponymous first wine was inspired by the drinkable “mixed blacks” made by the Italian immigrants who originally settled in Napa Valley. Since launch, The Prisoner soon became recognized as one of the most innovative Napa Valley wines, leading the resurgence of California red blends and earning “cult wine” status. Now complemented by a white blend (Blindfold), Chardonnay (The Snitch), Cabernet Sauvignon (Cuttings), Zinfandel (Saldo), Merlot (Thorn) and a Red Blend (Dérangé), The Prisoner Wine Company’s winemaking philosophy remains the same: To collaborate with a family of growers throughout California’s best winegrowing regions to craft wines of exceptional quality and unexpected character.
The Prisoner Wine Company acquires grapes from more than 100 vineyards throughout California’s premier grape-growing regions, partnering with phenomenal growers who are dedicated to cultivating unique varieties. Chrissy Wittmann and her team of winemakers collaborate with this family of growers, visiting each vineyard site throughout the year to carefully assess the style and quality of every lot to make the best possible wine from each vintage.”-Winery Notes

"If you like a rich full bodied Chardonnay; you will love Blindfold. I purchased this wine from my local store about 6 months ago and immediately got hooked. Only wine for me. I'm glad Empire Wine carries Blindfold with free shipping for a case. They ship fast, and have awesome customer service. I expect to be ordering another case shortly."
