96pts Vinous

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Vineyard brings together all the best elements of the Snowden style. Large swaths of tannin wrap around a potent, deep Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with real resonance and structure. Vertical in feel with soaring intensity, the 2018 is shaping up to be a real beauty and also one of the most complete wines from Diana Snowden in some time.
Range: 93-96

95pts Wine Spectator - #52 Top 100 of 2021

This is ripe, warm in feel and very polished, with alluring cassis, plum reduction and melted black licorice notes pouring through, while sleek alder, loam and bay leaf accents form the backdrop for a long, steady finish. Gorgeous. Best from 2022 through 2038.

92pts James Suckling

This has ripe dark-fruit character, together with coffee, chocolate and cedar wood. Full-bodied, chewy and viscous with juicy fruit and crushed-stone minerality. Needs some time to soften the tannin structure. Solid and framed. Try from 2023.

Winemaker Notes

This powerful and layered wine is densely packed with black plums, pencil lead, cedar, resin and dark fruits. Long and dense, the wine lingers on the palate for minutes. Somewhat strict in its youth, the Brothers 2018 will benefit from time in bottle to open and show the full spectrum of its aromatic and textural potential.
