What We’re Drinking



SnowdenCall me fickle, but it seems that every month I have a new favorite winery. This month it is Snowden, a small production winery in the heart of Napa Valley.

For more than 50 years, three generations of the Snowden family farmed grapes and sold them to prominent Napa wineries. Finally, in 1993 they took the big leap and started their own label. They produce two Cabernets—my favorite is the less expensive one ($48), referred to as The Ranch, which is softer and more approachable due to the addition of some Merlot. They produce only one white, a Sauvignon Blanc, that is clean, balanced, with lemon zest and a bit of minerality. They only make 88 cases of this wine, which retails for $29 a bottle.
