Indulge in the extraordinary journey of our 2019 Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Block 136, a true testament to the artistry of winemaking. Crafted with meticulous care, this vintage spent 26 months maturing in a harmonious blend of 75% new French oak and 25% once-used French oak barrels, infusing it with layers of complexity and depth.

During its maturation, our winemakers tenderly stirred the lees for a year, coaxing out the wine's full potential and enhancing its texture. Throughout its aging process, this remarkable wine underwent three delicate rackings in its second year, ensuring optimal clarity and purity.

As a final touch, we chose to bottle this exceptional wine unfined and unfiltered, preserving its inherent character and allowing its vibrant personality to shine through with every sip.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from one of our premier Cabernet blocks on the property, Block 136. This block produces a wine with lively aromas of dark cherry, blackberries, and a hint of mint chocolate. The palate is smooth with silky tannins that lead to a long finish with notes of espresso, fresh herbs, figs, and ripe boysenberries. A balanced yet approachable wine, this Cabernet has the strength and potential to age for years to come.
Vineyard Notes
The 2021 vintage will be remembered for low yields with intensely flavored, small-sized berries and a smooth and uneventful harvest season. The season started with very little rain, leading to the 2nd year of drought conditions in Napa Valley; Harvest began early. The resulting grapes are packed full of flavor. The smaller yields per vine and smaller berry size will result in another fantastic vintage from Napa Valley.
