Orin Swift wine dinner at Plantation House
May 19, 2011 - Carla Tracy
Just about every wine lover on Maui that I know wants to be shackled to The Prisoner, a Napa Valley red wine.
According to the Orin Swift newsletter, “2009 marks the first vintage bottled by The Prisoner's new owner, Huneeus Vintners. We are very pleased to be working with the Huneeus family and look forward to many successful harvests together.”
“This vintage has a deep ruby hue that is nearly opaque. The aromas elevate from the glass starting with black currant, dark blackberry, cherry, and cassis rounded out by subtle hints of seasoned French and American oak. The entry of the wine is massive and leads into a lush middle framed by bright acid and supple tannins. The finish is long, lingering and filled with soft velvety tannins lasting for nearly thirty seconds.”
The Prisoner will flow as part of an Orin Swift winemaker dinner at 6 p.m. Sunday at the Plantation House in Kapalua. Attached is the pdf file of the menu. Cost is $95 plus tax and gratuity. For reservations, call the Plantation House at (808)-669-6299.
In addition, Plantation House along with JMD Beverages, will host another dinner planned during the Kapalua Wine and Food Festival. Many of the details but the menu and pairings are still being worked out. It will be on June 11th with Ted Lemon, winemaker of the famous Littorai winery.
