The 2017 Brothers shows more depth of character every year. Its brooding aromas of sandalwood, dried tobacco, black currant, and blackberries draw you in. The wine is deep and textured on the palate, with savory, meaty body mingling with plumy cherry. Lingering, long and full, it finishes with lightly dry tannins, which compel for more. As a winemaker, I'm often asked the impossible question, "which wine is your favorite?"... a question I will ponder as I finish this glass ...

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Vineyard is gorgeous. In this vintage, the Brothers has a bit more tannin and overall structure than normal, but in 2017 a power outage resulted in the wine staying in tank for an extra ten days. In the end, that looks to have been a help, as the 2017 offers a terrific combination of fruit density and structure, within the mid-weight style of the year at Snowden. This is a beguiling wine that may very well turn out to be a surprise in time. Super classic, old-school, medium-bodied wine with good depth and resonance alongside notes of black cherry, leather, tobacco, licorice and gravel.
