Notes from the Winemaker:
Assertive yet nuanced, the '16 Brothers was produced from grapes grown in our favorite section of the Brothers Vineyard -- comprising less than two acres, situated on a gentle east-facing slope at slightly over 800 feet of elevation -- writing in Vinous, critic Antonio Galloni describes the '16 Brothers as "rich, explosive and savory," and calls it the best Snowden he has tasted from winemaker Diana Snowden Seysses -- 100% Cabernet Sauvignon -- aged 17 months in French oak -- bottled unfiltered and unfined after 17 months in French oak -- writing in The Wine Spectator, critic James Molesworth speaks of the wine's "alluring freshness and a subtle charcoal hint lingering deftly on the end" -- he recommends drinking the '16 Brothers within the next thirteen years.

Ratings & Reviews

96+ Points - Vinous:
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers is the best wine I have tasted from Diana Snowden-Seysses. Rich, explosive and savory, the 2016 dazzles with intensity in all of its dimensions. Graphite, smoke, savory herbs and spice notes wrap around a core of dark fruit in a vertical, towering Cabernet Sauvignon that captures all the vintage has to offer. " Antonio Galloni - (Dec 2018)

94 Points & #91 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:
"Offers a tasty core of plum and blackberry fruit, backed by lively anise and apple wood notes. Restrained overall, with an alluring freshness and a subtle charcoal hint lingering deftly at the end. Drink now through 2032. 639 cases made." — JM

92 Points - James Suckling:
"A really pretty cab with fresh blueberries, crushed stones and orange zest, plus hints of hazelnuts. Medium body, bright acidity, tightly wound tannins and a fine finish. Lovely purity of fruit. Drink in 2023." - (7 Feb, 2019)
