Buy 6 - 2016 Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
Country : USA
Vintage : 2016
Region : Napa Valley
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.
This Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied wine with balanced acidity and tannins. The nose is full of chocolate, black cherries, cassis, and a touch of earth. The rounded mouthfeel is persistent in the long and lingering rich finish.
Plummy red fruit is softly layered around rich toasted notes of cinnamon and cedar in this 100% varietal wine. Well put together, it has a dense heartiness to it that shines in complexity and over-delivers on its price point.
