SKU: 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ranch

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon "The Ranch" is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot.  The 2011 growing season gave us a wine characterized by finesse and balance -- and approachable from the moment it was released.  “... a beautiful introduction to the  vintage. Tobacco, new leather, spices and plums all meld together in an impeccable, gracious wine loaded with class and personality ...”  [Vinous, Antonio Galloni, 11/13.]  The previous vintage of this wine was recently named to the top 100 wines of 2013 by the San Francisco Chronicle's SFGate.com.  "In a ZIP code where $100 gets a shrug, the Snowden family - and winemaker Diana Snowden Seysses - brings remarkable finesse to the fruit from its longtime Napa property above Rutherford. The Ranch, their second wine, is more immediate, but its spice and silken tannins provide a depth to blackcurrant flavors that show Cabernet at its classiest."  [Top 100 Wines of 2013, SFGate.com, 11/30/13.]
