Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad I tried something new Delicious. Opened a bottle and tried to get my husband to join me... He doesn't drink wine. Absolutely delightful. I enjoy sweetness so this hit the spot. Jammy with a lovely finish. I'm glad the sales clerk guided me to this bottle. I was buying a Rombauer Zinfandel for my best friends bday... And was encouraged to try a comparative. You won't be disappointed. April 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My new favorite "Love at first taste". Amazing blend which has you wanting more. Great with BBQ, Grilled Meats, and even Lamb. Easy tannins which complement so many things. Don't see it as much as the comparable to The Prisoner, which is much more full bodied and less structured in my humble opinion. The Riddler in my view would be a better wine to compare The Fugitive to, but while quite good is no match versus my number 1. Just ordered a case. April 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by An Amazing Wine!!!!! For the price, this is one of the most amazing wines I have ever tasted. Shared a bottle with the wife and we're hooked. We serve this wine at all of our family events!!!!!!!!! December 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Like Prisoner? Save $ and get Fugitive! Nothing against Mr. Swift and his delicious Prisoner, but the price point, quality of winemaking and overall taste put Fugitive one-step above. Has more body than Prisoner, smother flavors of spice and fruit. Try it with a BBQ and grilled meats! October 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quite Wonderful !!!!!!!!!!!!!! At this price range, one of the most amazing wines I have had. Shared a bottle with a friend who had the same reaction. Loved this bottle and buying more!!!!!!!!! July 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Prisoner Schmisoner This was suggested as an alternative to "The Prisoner". It's very jammy and fruit forward. In anything other than a side by side comparison, I defy most anyone to express a preference between the two (especially for $13/bottle). We can now drink 3 for the price of 2! July 14, 2013
