Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Pencil shavings and leather aromas mark the entry of this robustly full-bodied wine. It has a pronounced forest floor character, while blackberry and black cherry flavors combine with licorice and dark chocolate, filling out the richer notes that interweave throughout the palate, leading into a long finish.
A reasonably good value in Cabernet Sauvignon is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, which sees about one-third new French oak. This wine shows lots of blackcurrant fruit as well as hints of chocolate, forest floor and underbrush. It is medium to full-bodied, fleshy, and ideal for drinking over the next 12-15 years.
