Mouthfeel Muscular tannins, silky finish
Tasting Notes The 2018 Snake Oil has a beautiful deep and rich ruby color. On the nose, there are pleasant complex aromas of earth and spice with notes of warm chocolate mocha. Hints of blueberry, black cherries, and berry cobbler immediately scream from the glass. This wine has muscular tannins that grip at the beginning and linger to a beautiful silky long finish. Although graceful now, you can cellar for 10 to 15 years.

About Priest Ranch

Brand Story

Priest Ranch is a historic Napa Valley property established in 1869 by James Joshua Priest, a Gold Rush prospector. In 2004 we combined the historic Priest Ranch and Elder Valley properties to create the Somerston Estate. Today the 1,615 acre estate has 215 acres of producing vineyards from 15 distinct areas with a total of 180 different blocks. We have explored the diversity of the property by blending multiple blocks into every wine produced. These multi-block wines showcase impressive quality and represent the property at the highest level. Each vineyard is uniquely tended based on the grape varietal.
