2018 Priest Ranch Double Barrel
Ready to adventure out and try something different, Double Barrel is a fantastic 50/50 red blend of Napa Valley fruit that changes vintage to vintage. Each year, our winemaking team chooses two varieties that they believe will complement each other to create a wine that never disappoints. For the 2018 vintage, they chose Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec from our property - Somerston Estate. Fun fact, to date, no two vintages have been the same.
