Snowden The Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$49.95

Elegant red and black currant fruit with dusty loamy soils notes, a hint of coffee beans and subtle background oak are all present in this deep, medium to full-bodied, stylish wine that seems to want to behave like a French Bordeaux, but clearly has the ripeness and flesh of Napa. Robert Parker

My "Red Wine Of The Year" from 2014. Distinct Napa density without being overbearing. Lifted from acid structure, elegant tannins, amazing all around.

Comparing to the 13 last night... This is not quite as big in alcohol. Even more opaque. More silky on the tongue. Instead of a green front I got a little spice, nutmeg. Tannins were softer. In sum, I give the slight nod to 2013 Snowden over 2012 Snowden. Experiment complete. 92 points

Textbook Napa cab, nose of mocha and stony dark fruit. Big if a bit linear, but so nicely done you forgive it and move on to the waves of unctuous plummy, earthy tones. A winner, fer sure! Thanks, James @liverpoolhouse!

Ok... Snowden... first, as you will notice, this is my second bottle of the evening. So, maybe I'm being paranoid, but before opening... I changed my WiFi password. So the bouquet is riddled with spoiled milk. I am a novice so someone please explain myself. But that's the nose. Tasting, I get a nice round (I know I use that a lot) mouthful of Cedar. Tannins are perfect. Damn good! Traitor! 92 points
