Well on this day in 1968, Johnny Cash recorded his legendary live album, At Folsom Prison. This reminds me of a favorite wine, The Prisoner. That is their flagship blend, but all of their wines are worth trying.

Here is the description from their website The Prisoner truly is… “one of a kind”. When Dave Phinney (founder) launched the wine in 2003, there really was no other wine like it. Inspired and created by the drinkable “mixed blacks” first made by the Italian immigrants who originally settled in the Napa Valley, it was innovative and unique. In the late ’90s a handful of Napa producers took an interest in making this style of wine. The blend soon began to incorporate not only Zinfandel, but also Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Charbono, and Grenache.
