Snowden Vineyards

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon "Brothers Vineyard" Magnum
Magnum (1.5L)

Produced from organically farmed fruit grown at 850 feet of elevation on the eastern slope of the Napa Valley between St. Helena and Rutherford, winemaker Diana Seysses describes the '17 Brothers as "deep and textured on the palate ... lingering, long and full." Writing in Vinous, Antonio Galloni calls the wine "gorgeous" and "beguiling," with a "terrific combination of fruit density and structure." Harvested well before the fires of 2017, this delightful wine gives no hint of the challenges of its vintage. Fermented with natural wild yeasts, aged 17 months in French oak, bottled unfiltered, unfined, and unblended, we produced 636 cases of 750 mL bottles and 40 cases of magnums.

Winemaker Notes
The 2017 Brothers shows more depth of character every year. Its brooding aromas of sandalwood, dried tobacco, black currants, and blackberries draw you in. The wine is deep and textured on the palate, with savory, meaty body mingling with plumy cherry. lingering, long and full, it finishes with lightly dry tannins, which compel for more. As a winemaker, I'm often asked the impossible question, "which wine is your favorite?" ... a question I will ponder as I finish this glass ...
