Snowden Brothers Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
WS95 (#52 Top 100): This is ripe, warm in feel and very polished, with alluring cassis, plum reduction and melted black licorice notes pouring through, while sleek alder, loam and bay leaf accents form the backdrop for a long, steady finish. Gorgeous. Best from 2022 through 2038. 673 cases made.
JD93-96: The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Vineyard brings together all the best elements of the Snowden style. Large swaths of tannin wrap around a potent, deep Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with real resonance and structure. Vertical in feel with soaring intensity, the 2018 is shaping up to be a real beauty and also one of the most complete wines from Diana Snowden in some time.
