PRIEST RANCH 2011 CABERNET SAUVIGNON 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 the winemaking team of Craig Becker and Kent Jarman (also of Kenefick and Joseph Kent) assure that the ensuing wines remain unmanipulated, and show distinct terroir!

This is the fifth release of Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon from Somerston Estate. It shows aromas of dark chocolate, blackberry, spice, and dark cherry. On the palate, the wine is smooth yet full bodied and refined, with ripe dark berries, juicy chocolate, and a touch of spice. This silky rich wine has a long finish that keeps on giving!
