Snowden Vineyards

2016 Cabernet Sauvignon "Brothers Vineyard"

Assertive yet nuanced, the '16 Brothers was produced from grapes grown in our favorite section of the Brothers Vineyard -- comprising less than two acres, situated on a gentle east-facing slope at slightly over 800 feet of elevation -- writing in Vinous, critic Antonio Galloni describes the '16 Brothers as "rich, explosive and savory," and calls it the best Snowden he has tasted from winemaker Diana Snowden Seysses -- 100% Cabernet Sauvignon -- aged 17 months in French oak -- bottled unfiltered and unfined after 17 months in French oak -- writing in The Wine Spectator, critic James Molesworth speaks of the wine's "alluring freshness and a subtle charcoal hint lingering deftly on the end" -- he recommends drinking the '16 Brothers within the next thirteen years.
