Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)
DescriptionPriest Ranch wines began in 2007 with our first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. Our Winemaker and Co-founder, Craig Becker, hasn’t looked back since. Honoring our Napa Valley heritage by cultivating wines with distinctive profiles, Priest Ranch is committed to a forward-thinking mindset and a unswerving commitment to quality at the highest level. We have explored the diversity of the property by blending multiple blocks into every wine produced. These multi-block wines showcase the impressive quality and represent the property at the highest level. Each vineyard is uniquely tended based on the grape varietal. Our wines are recognized for their adventurous and unique character, crafted both in the vineyard and the winery to reflect the richness and diversity of their source. Being in control of our vineyards, we can adapt the viticulture practice to each block. Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon was aged 22 months in 40% new French oak and 60% once used French oak barrels. The lees were stirred for the first year followed by three racking in the second year of aging. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Dark red cherries, mint, mocha, spices and leather flesh out in the Cabernet Sauvignon from Priest Ranch. The style is rich, dark and enveloping, with tons of depth and compelling balance at this level. This supple, inviting Cabernet is an excellent choice for drinking over the next handful of years.
