When superstar winemaker Dave Phinney is your brother-in-law, your family owns Whitehall Lane, and dear friends control some of the best vineyards in Napa Valley, releasing a knockout Cabernet Sauvignon is a right of passage.

Winemaker Tony Leonardini took full advantage of the family in Volunteer, a diamond in the rough Cab from a secret-source vineyard near the 100-pt Kapscandy. With the Prisoner family legacy and a lifetime in Napa, Volunteer is a blind-buy without the risk.

About the wine

Winemaker Tony Leonardini is a former volunteer firefighter and Napa native with two loves—grapes and fire. Now focused on the former, Volunteer pays it forward to California’s army of smoke-jumping volunteers.

Leonardini grew up working in the vineyards and winery at White Hall Lane, giving his wines the insider’s edge you just don’t get outside of Napa. Armed with decades of experience on the front lines and grape sorting lines, Volunteer combines prime Napa Valley Cabernet from pristine vineyards with top-notch winemaking, plain and simple. Medium-bodied and layered with complexity, Volunteer is practically giving itself away!

Don’t miss this insane deal on $150+ wine at a fraction of the price.

"Just wow. Amazing value. Would give it 4.75 if I could. A must buy." - William G.

"Deep ruby red color with scents of black berries, anise, and tobacco leaf. Vanilla comes through on the palate finished with sweet black licorice. I would pair this wine with triple cream brie with blackberry preserves."

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
