A dark rich and firmly tannic mouthful of currant anise cedar tar and herbal flavors this deeply concentrated Cabernet is one for the cellar. An immense wine that reminds me of a barrel sample; patience required. Best... A dark rich and firmly tannic mouthful of currant anise cedar tar and herbal flavors this deeply concentrated Cabernet is one for the cellar. An immense wine that reminds me of a barrel sample; patience required. Best from 2004 through 2010. 1208 cases made.

This outstanding effort may be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon Snowden has yet produced. An opaque purple color is followed by sweet chocolatey blackberry and cassis flavors full body plenty of depth and a chewy long finish... This outstanding effort may be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon Snowden has yet produced. An opaque purple color is followed by sweet chocolatey blackberry and cassis flavors full body plenty of depth and a chewy long finish revealing sweet tannin as well as spicy wood. It will be even better with 2-3 more years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2016.
