Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Vineyard – 2021

Region: CALIFORNIA - NAPA VALLEY

Snowden

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 individualistic wines. Winemaking duties are in the capable hands of Diana Snowden Seysses. The winery produces Bordeaux blends from their estate vineyards and a small amount of Sauvignon Blanc from a small parcel they call the Lost Vineyard.

The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Vineyard is dark and brooding in feel. Black cherry, plum, new leather, spice and espresso are front and center. Here, the fruit profile leans toward the darker end of the spectrum, and the oak imprint is quite a bit stronger. Rough, angular contours on the finish need time to meld together, but there is good substance throughout. 2025 – 2036

A fruit-driven, polished style, but without being bombastic, as red currant and black cherry fruit flavors lead off and then meld seamlessly with singed cedar, vanilla and tobacco hints, which gain more prominence through the finish. Should age nicely. Drink now through 2036.
