Snowden The Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 California Napa Red Wine 750 mL


The 2016 “Ranch” is produced from Cabernet Sauvignon grown in the Lower Vineyard — our western-most block — and the Lost Orchard Vineyard — our eastern-most block. The ’16 is a dramatic example of the richness and nuance of the vintage. Winemaker Diana Seysses says “the 2016 wines have an ease about them, with exquisite, floral and higher toned aromas born out of this unrushed vintage.” Critic Antoino Galloni calls the ’16 Ranch “… gorgeous … dark, powerful and beautifully structured … a wine of real gravitas and character … deeply flavorful, classicly built … a superb wine for the money.” (93 rating Vinous, 2018)

93 rating Vinous Media “Snowden’s 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ranch is gorgeous. Dark, powerful and beautifully structured, the 2016 Ranch is a huge overachiever. In 2016, the Ranch is a wine of real power, gravitas and character. Black cherry, plum, lavender and savory herbs all develop in the glass, but it is the wine’s persistence and overall balance that stands out in this deeply flavorful, classically built Cabernet from Snowden. Best of all, the 2016 is a superb wine for the money.” Antonio Galloni
