Aromas of dark chocolate, blackberry, spice, and dark cherry. On the palate, the wine is smooth yet full bodied and refined, with firm tanninc structure and a dry finish. We recommend decanting. Prior to bottling their own wine, Preist Ranch sold their grapes to some of California's most prestigious wineries like Caymus, Duckhorn, Pahlmeyer and Viader…. Break out the decanter if you have one to let this beauty open up and pair it with a thick grilled ribeye!
