The Coachgun is Priest Ranch's Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend. A rich, explosive wine, saturates the palate with notable intensity and pure power. Dark red/black fruit, espresso, grilled herbs and licorice are some of the many notes that open up in this voluptuous yet powerful wine from Priest Ranch. it’s a big, chewy proprietary red that shows lots of lard, pepper, bouquet garni and aged beef smells. It is full-bodied, heady, and Rhône Ranger-like.
Priest 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.
