For three generations our family has been farming red wine grapes on our ranch located on the eastern slope of the Napa Valley overlooking the towns of Rutherford and St. Helena. Our property is in the heartland of vineyards of distinction and character; it touches both the Rutherford and St. Helena appellations, and the Howell Mountain appellation is a few hundred yards away. The vineyards are planted well above the valley floor, protecting them from temperature extremes, on well-drained perlite soils. The wines from this exceptional site are layered, powerful and harmonious. For fifty years we, the Snowdens, have been stewards of this vineyard. Read less

Deep purple core with a paler rim. Alluring aromas of baking spice, garden herbs, anise and cocoa are immediately discernible, while notes of dark berry and damp earth are a bit more coy, though mouthwatering once they unfurl. An explosion of cherry ... Roland Hankerson. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2010 Snowden The Ranch, Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Snowden's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ranch is one of the bigger, juicier wines readers will come across in this vintage. Mocha, chocolate, spices, plums and black cherries seem to literally jump from the glass. Merlot plays a pretty important role in the 2010, which gives the wine much of its roundness and early accessibility. Round, expressive and racy, the 2010 Ranch is a terrific effort from Snowden. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. Good deep red-ruby. Aromas of blackberry, violet, licorice and cocoa powder. Sweet and lush on entry, with enticing black fruit and licorice flavors accented by fresh herbs. Substantial tannins currently cut off the dark fruit flavors on the back. This is the estates second-label cabernet.
