Our 2018 Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon greets you with aromas of tobacco and crushed blackberries. On the palate it is poised and fresh. Flavors of black fruit are buttressed by orange rind and warm tannins.

Fresh and focused, with a well-built core of red currant, plum and black cherry preserves supported by a loamy spine, with tobacco and singed alder lining the finish. Best from 2022 through 2035. 1,203 cases made. James Molesworth, October 15, 2021
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ranch shows just how compelling this vintage is. Dark and resonant in the glass, but also medium in body, the 2018 is so precise and nuanced. Red cherry, cedar, tobacco and mint add lovely aromatic top notes to this mid-weight yet rich Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2018 finishes with grippy tannins and tons of energy.
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. We invite you to discover our remarkable, world-class wines.
