A P P E L L A T I O N & V I N E Y A R D S
The historic Priest Ranch is now part of Somerston
Estate, a significant property totaling 1,682 acres
with 244 acres of hillside vineyards. The wines of
Priest Ranch are sourced from multiple blocks,
showcasing the diversity and complexity of the
combined property. Our 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
came from 24 unique vineyard blocks, planted at
elevations from 850 to 1650 ft asl.
W I N E M A K I N G
Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon was aged 23
months in 50% new French oak and 50% 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.
H A R V E S T N O T E S
The beginning of the 2019 growing season was
defined by copious rainfall and late soil moisture
followed by a warm summer. We saw very few
extreme heat events, with foggy mornings setting
the stage for vibrant and expressive wines. The
long, relatively mild finish to the season, helped to
preserve freshness and finesse in the fruit with
sufficient hang time teasing out a great color,
structure, and soft tannins.
T A S T I N G N O T E S
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. The finish is a rounded mouthfeel that is
persistent in the long and lingering opulent finish.
