Winemaker's Notes

This is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon; it is inky, with aromas of violets, graphite and black fruits. It has impressive length, and a chiseled structure accompanied by sweet, soft black fruit and spiced with clove and nutmeg.

Critical Acclaim

"This Cabernet takes its place among Napa’s top tier. Bone dry and nobly structured, it shows firm tannins and bracing acidity, framing classic blackberry and currant flavors. Should come into its own after 2015."
95 Points

"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is drop-dead gorgeous. Dark red fruit, tobacco, flowers and licorice emerge from this massive, powerful wine. The Reserved fleshes out beautifully on the palate as the fruit gains dimension and volume with. Hints of licorice, menthol and tar wrap around the powerful, structured finish. This is a dazzling showing from Snowden. The 2009 harvest was not an easy one, but Diana Snowden Seysses did a brilliant job coping with the October rains. In 2009 the blend is 75.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19.1% Merlot, 3.8% Cabernet Franc and 1.6 % Petit Verdot. 94+."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
