2014 The Ranch, Snowden, Napa Valley

With her Californian heritage and Burgundian experience, Diana Snowden Seysses has created a sumptuous Cabernet blend that wows with its pure, ripe fruit and pitch perfect balance. Textbook Napa characteristics of dark fruit and mocha are complemented by a delightful lightness on the palate. This is a wonderfully elegant and drinkable Cabernet, with a long life ahead of it.

TASTING NOTES

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon The Ranch is another gorgeous wine from Snowden. Dark, racy and expressive, the 2014 boasts lovely depth and polish. Dark cherry, plum, spice, mocha and leather are all pushed forward. Gracious and medium in body, with fabulous balance, the 2014 has it all. Best of all, The Ranch is one of the best values readers will find in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Don't miss it!
