International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 150

Good bright ruby. Dark cherry, licorice, mint and herbs on the nose. Less dense but more juicy than the 2007 Ranch, with the licorice note carrying through in the mouth. A less chunky but also cooler style, showing good balance and suave tannins but finishing with a slightly dryness. Diana Snowden pointed out that her family's vineyards, on volcanic ash soil above Sloan, at an altitude of up to 800 feet, are on land that was under vine at least as far back as 1876. The Snowdens planted their vineyards in 1985, and the Ranch bottling includes fruit from some vines on AXR rootstock, which were scheduled to be torn out this spring. Snowden noted that the AXR typically yielded coarser tannins.
