2007 Priest Ranch Petite Sirah Somerston Vineyards
RATING: 95 points

PRODUCER:Priest Ranch 
FROM:Napa Valley Napa, North Coast, California, USA
VARIETY:Petite Sirah
DRINK:-
SOURCE:WA, #192
Dec 2010
The monster in the group is the 2007 Petite Sirah Somerston Vineyard. Inky/purple, with notes of graphite, licorice, incense, blueberry and spring flowers, this wine is remarkably civilized for Petite Sirah, with sweet tannin, lots of fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel, but no hard edges. Given the anti-oxidative characteristics of this varietal, this wine will no doubt age for 20 or more years, but it can be drunk now.

RATING: 94 points

PRODUCER:Priest Ranch 
FROM:Napa Valley Napa, North Coast, California, USA
VARIETY:Cabernet Sauvignon
DRINK:2010 - 2025
SOURCE:WA, #192
Dec 2010
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Somerston Vineyards has a saturated ruby/plum/purple color and a big, sweet kiss of spring flowers intermixed with black cherry, black currant, and spice. Floral notes continue in the mouth, with beautiful texture, purity, full body, and a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, wood and alcohol. This fragrant beauty combines both elegance and power into a classic Cabernet Sauvignon with a perfumed personality. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

2009 Priest Ranch Sauvignon Blanc Somerston Vineyards
RATING: 91 points

PRODUCER:Priest Ranch
FROM:Napa Valley Napa, North Coast, California, USA
VARIETY:Sauvignon Blanc
DRINK:-
SOURCE:WA, #192
Dec 2010
A real head-turner, the 2009 Sauvignon Blanc is light straw-colored with oodles of melon and crushed rock in its perfumed set of aromatics. The elegant, fresh, medium-bodied wine hits the palate with authority. With loads of fruit and a striking minerality, it is an interesting and distinctive Sauvignon Blanc made in a Bordeaux style.
