2016 Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
Every once in awhile you taste a wine, taste it again, and then have to scratch your head at the price tag. Could a wine this wonderful, a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, really be just $50 retail? Am I seeing that correctly? The 2016 Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is an unfiltered beauty that really pushed be back in my chair! Absolutely mouth-coating and full of delicious dark fruits, dark chocolate, whisps of dried spices and incredibly satisfying tannins that dance on the palate from beginning to end. I'll be honest with you. I spent minutes just swirling and smelling this wine, both at the beginning and throughout the tasting experience. It's that good. And remember, you could go to a restaurant and spend $12 - $16 for a glass of wine from a $20 bottle that is mediocre or you go visit the Priest Ranch Winery web site and purchase a few bottles of this Cabernet, knowing that you are getting more than your money's worth! Highly recommended.
