Wine Advocate 90 points - A blend of 30% Chardonnay, 20% Viognier, 20% Roussanne and the balance Grenache Blanc, Chenin Blanc and a few other grapes, the 2013 Proprietary White Blindfold is close in quality to the brilliant 2012 I reviewed last year. Reminiscent of some of Sine Qua Non’s white wines from California’s Central Coast, the 2013 is more zesty, and plays it closer to the vest, but it offers lovely notes of fresh pineapple, tangerine skins, orange marmalade, melon and honeysuckle. I wish more California wineries would consider using such innovative blends as this given the high quality that can result. This beauty should be enjoyed over the next several years. (Oct 2014)

In the relentless pursuit of creating inherently delicious wines, we are inspired by making wines that are truly unique and intriguing. Our mission is to forge our way off the beaten path, seek interesting varietals and blend them together to make wines that are authentic, approachable and thought-provoking. When we took ownership of The Prisoner and Saldo in 2009 from Orin Swift, we knew assembling the right team would be essential. With more than a decade of winemaking experience at Ravenswood crafting Zinfandel, Jen Beloz was the ideal person to take the lead. In order to remain true to the wine’s original style and vision, Jen worked alongside Dave Phinney, founder of The Prisoner, for the first two vintages. In 2012, she took the lead and seamlessly blended the wines across the entire portfolio. Jen’s role extends far beyond the cellar to grape sourcing and collaborating with our family of vineyard growers. Much of her time is spent visiting our vineyard sites across California’s premier wine-growing regions, carefully assessing the style and quality of the fruit in order to create authentic and impactful wines.
