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.
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.
