"Snowden's Cabernet Sauvignon The Brothers has all the balance and harmony that defines the wines here in this vintage. Vivid, nuanced and deeply expressive, the 2014 presents a beguiling interplay of expressive aromatics and rich fruit, with beams of supporting tannin that shape the wine. Hints of tobacco and savory herbs add to the wine's considerable personality." –Feb-17
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Vineyard is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. This is a beauty and clearly the star of the red wine portfolio. Dense purple, with loads of cassis, blackberry, licorice and graphite, the wine hits the palate with considerable authority, impressive purity and only a hint of new oak (only 45% new barriques were utilized ). The finish was long, full-bodied and silky. This can be drunk now, or cellared for 20-25 years."
A vineyard-specific wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grown on what has proved to be the most favored terroir at the Snowden ranch. As the vineyard returns to production, after going out for replanting in 2009, it is reclaiming its status as the heart of Snowden’s first wine.
The wines do not go through extended maceration or presoak, and are always made without use of any nutrient or yeast additions.
