Snowden

Brothers Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Decanted two hours. Dark and opaque colour. Very nice nose of black currant, cedar, licorice and very oaky. The palate is powerful, oak and dark fruit dominate, found very little freshness, finesse and elegance to balance out the power at this stage, seems too young or disjointed. 89-90 for the potential maybe

Carafé deux heures, couleur foncée et opaque. Beau nez assez typé de cèdre, cassis mais avec une dominance du bois. La bouche est puissante et tannique, dominée par le bois et un beau fruit noir mais peu de fraîcheur, finesse ou élégance pour contre balancer cette puissance non contenue. Trop jeune ou un autre gros Cab Californien sur-évalué?

Stelvin Closure so it's staying crispy. good amount of oak showing off as sweet cream and toasty vanilla. plenty of passion fruit and fig here too. good stuff. might need 30 to open up — 6 years ago

The Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Fairly tight and highish acid right out of the bottle. Shows really well with some air. Crunchy dark fruit, currant, judicious oak, good freshness, nice clean structure. Prob one of the better values in Napa Cab at $50. Will definitely improve in the cellar. Thanks Obama. — 3 months ago

Lost Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Always fun to try older wines like this. Cassis, dried herbs, tobacco, cigar box, soft tannin and acid still holding. Great time to drink. Buddy brought it as a shoe in for a faulted wine and it turned out to be a stunner. Gotta say, sometimes bottle variation can prove to be a good thing, if you get the right one of course 👍🏻 — 3 years ago

#WhoIsRuben event honoring Ruben Solorzano. Nice Sauv Blanc - perhaps an extra point for being nicely chilled on a hot day. Goodland (Good Land) is a joint project of Ruben Solorzano, Matt Dees, Chris Snowden and Dave Potter. — 4 years ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1989

Classic mature Napa Cabernet. A great bottle of wine. Shared with good friends in Napa. Medium bodied, ripe red fruits, rhubarb, and underlying forest floor. 30 % Snowden fruit and the earthiness shows it. 12% alcohol and firm acidity from winemaker styles of long ago. What a treat. — 5 years ago
