PRIEST RANCH 2010 PETITE SIRAH NAPA VALLEY 750mL

Located way behind the eastern mountains of the Napa Valley lies one of the most beautiful vineyards we have ever seen. If you drive about 8 miles east of Rutherford, you will find Somerston Wines and their Priest Ranch. This is a sustainably-farmed vineyard that is producing some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the Napa Valley, yet they are flying under the radar, even for many who live in the Napa Valley. Some of their Cabernet vines are 40 years old, and while they keep a little for themselves, other wineries such as Kathryn Hall and Orin Swift have gladly stepped up to obtain the grapes! Owner Allan Chapman is a phenomenal steward of the land (one of the best we've seen anywhere in California), and winemaker assures that the ensuing wines remain unmanipulated, and show distinct terroir!

This is the fifth release of Priest Ranch Petite Sirah from the Somerston Estate. The wine was racked an amazing six times to tame the sometimes high level of tannin natural to Petite Sirah. This 2010 vintage is an inky wine with dark fruit aromas of warm berry pie and ripe plum. The palate offers supple dark cherry flavors, star anise and cinnamon with a wonderful balance of firm yet integrated tannins. This is an amazing wine!
