2019 HIGHLANDS RESERVE NAPA VALLEY CABERNET

$85.00

Highlands Winery combines over 75 years of winemaking and grape growing experience by two wine industry pioneers, both working with some of the biggest names in Napa. Dave Cofran began making wine in 1967 and later joined Silver Oak in 1984 as GM, and Paul Segas is an expert in the vineyard, selling grapes to Chateau Montelena, Joseph Phelps, and Robert Mondavi… this is a high-quality Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from deeply rooted connections, and cases are highly recommended.

Paul and Dave spent years perfecting their crafts and combined their expertise to make high-quality wines from small plots, guided by the belief that winemaking begins in the vineyard. Their attention to detail, drive to make their best wines possible, and vast knowledge of the vineyards and winemaking is undeniable in this wine, which won’t last long at this VIP Exclusive price (heads-up, limited).

2019 HIGHLANDS RESERVE NAPA VALLEY CABERNET

Tasting Notes, “Big, vibrant and silky… the Highlands Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is an incredibly aromatic beauty that opens with violets, cassis, blackberries, anise, and graphite. The palate is round with flavors of black plums, cloves, and chocolate fondant cake. The fine-grained tannic structure and fresh acidity will age very well, becoming softer with time and revealing additional layers of complex flavors.”

Tasting Notes from Winery, “Full and powerful nose, deep ruby/garnet color, this Cabernet Sauvignon drives anticipation. Vibrant aromas of cherry, red berries, vanilla, and gentle oak tantalize the nose. These senses are followed with a full and lush sense of sweetness on each sip carrying blackberry, cocoa and earthy notes with a lasting finish. It is a sophisticated wine… Enjoy now or cellar it to develop over time. The excellent tannic and acid structure will allow this wine to cellar up to 15 years. A wine of this caliber will benefit from moderate decanting… All in all, exceptional fruit, bright acidity, and ample texture for an amazing vintage. You will taste a wine of finesse, complexity and elegance.
