The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful, full-bodied Napa Valley wine. On the nose, this wine has hints of cherry cola, vanilla, and dark fruit. Aromas of baked black fruit, chocolate and fresh thyme. Full-bodied with juicy black fruit. Succulent. Velvety tannins. The finish is a rounded mouthfeel that is persistent in the long and lingering opulent finish.

About Priest Ranch Winery
Priest Ranch believes that all wines must stem from the land itself. Winemaker and viticulturist, Craig Becker, draws on our rich, diverse Estate vineyard to bring the Priest Ranch wines to life. Featuring a variety of elevations, exposures, soils and microclimates, our Estate provides fruit uncommon quality and character for Priest Ranch wines. Priest Ranch embodies the essence of Napa Valley, from the trailblazing mindset of its first pioneers to today’s spirit of agricultural excellence and preservation.
Inspired by James Joshua Priest, one of the original settlers in the area, Priest Ranch is dedicated to producing estate farmed wines of uncommon quality and character. The original Priest Ranch estate was established in 1869 by James Joshua Priest, a Gold Rush prospector. In 2004, we purchased this historic, 660 acre property and combined it with a 955 acre estate in Elder Valley – together creating our current Somerston Estate.
Today, our 1,615-acre estate is farmed with 230 acres of producing vineyards, in 15 distinct sites, encompassing over 180 different varietal blocks. Located high on the eastern hill of the Vaca Mountains above St. Helena, the estates’ varied range in elevations, exposures, soils, and microclimates allow us to create wines which showcase distinct expressions of its diverse terroir.
