Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Priest Ranch is a dark, brooding beauty. Black currants, cassis, melted road tar and mocha all flesh out in this gorgeous, brooding wine. There is plenty of vintage 2010 structure in the glass, yet at the same time the sheer intensity of the fruit makes the wine surprisingly accessible at this stage. Violets and sweet spices add lift on the polished finish... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Country US: As one of the most prolific and innovative wine regions in the world, America is a joy to explore. Most wine connoisseurs will agree that the nation's finest and most compelling wines are being produced today, which means that we have front-row seats to one of the most inspirational stories in wine history. While other regions tend to focus on specific wine styles and have somewhat strict rules as to which varietals you could grow, areas like California have few such restrictions in place. As a result, creative visionaries behind America's most reputable estates have been able to develop compelling, unique, and innovative styles, with a level of terroir expression that rivals even France's largest giants.
Producer Sette Ponti: Decades upon decades of rich history have brought Sette Ponti to where it is now, and their current status as one of Tuscany's most exceptional wineries is seldom argued against. Their seductive, mouth-watering wines are almost destined for parties and gatherings, even though you could set aside a week or so and still have subtleties to uncover. It's hard to put into words just how fascinating a good Sette Ponti can be, from the flavor intensity to the intricate complexity of its silky-smooth texture. It's hard to stop yourself at just one glass, although if you uncork a bottle in front of your friends, there may not be any wine left after the first couple of minutes. Treat yourself to a bottle or two from one of Tuscany's greatest.

Region California: With a history of wine production that dates back to the 18th century, California currently sits as one of the world's most prolific and reputable wine regions. With an area as vast as California, you can expect a colorful collage of terroir profiles, a series of microclimates, and micro-environments that give the wine a unique, memorable appeal. The region's produce is far from homogenized in that sense, and it would take you countless hours to sample all of it. While the region boasts scars from the Prohibition era, it went through what can only be described as a viticultural Renaissance sometime after the 1960s. At that point, California went from a port-style, sweet wine region to a versatile and compelling competitor on the world market. Today, no matter which way your taste in wine leans, you can find a new favorite producer among California's most talented. Notable sub-regions include legendary names like Napa Valley and Sonoma County, places that any wine lover would die to visit. California's quintessential warm climate allows for incredibly ripe fruit expressions, a style that provides a stark contrast to Old World-inspired, earthy classics. Even where inspiration was clearly taken from staple French appellations, Californian winemakers put their own unique spin on the wine.
