Snowden Vineyards The Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Since 1955, the snowdens have farmed their vineyard high above the Napa Valley. In addition to the stunning views of St. Helena, Rutherford and the San Francisco Bay, the estate offers four separate sites producing remarkably complex and unique wines. Winemaking duties are in the capable hands of Diana Snowden Seysses. The winery produces Bordeaux blends from their estate vineyards.
The Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from grapes grown in their Lost Orchard, Lower, and Brothers Vineyards, blended with Merlot and Petit Verdot - all estate fruit which comes together to create a powerful but approachable wine in a classic Bordeaux style. After tasting the '15 Ranch in barrel, Antonio Galloni called it "Deep, explosive and flamboyant. A Cabernet of total allure - the style of vintage comes through beautifully in plush black cherry and plum fruit."
