2014 Priest Ranch Mauser
only 74 cases produced
2014 is the first vintage of this limited production Cabernet Sauvignon - Mauser. This wine delivers scents of toast, green pepper, and blackcurrant on the nose. On the palate, there are hints of anise, blackberry, and roasted coffee bean. This highly balanced wine is rich in color and delivers velvety soft tannins on the finish.
The historic Priest Ranch is now part of the Somerston Estate, a significant property totaling 1,615 acres, with 222 acres planted to hillside vineyards. Dramatic elevations of the vineyards define and distinguish the estate, ranging from 800 ft to 2,400 ft above sea level. In 2014, the grapes for this wine were selected from the hillside Blocks 56, 58 and 136.
