2018 HIGHLANDS RESERVE HOWELL MOUNTAIN CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$88.00 $88.00

The Howell Mountain growing region is one of Napa Valley’s most acclaimed high-elevation appellations, and it was the first AVA established within the greater Napa Valley region. The area’s decomposed volcanic ash and iron-rich red clay soils contribute to the intensely powerful fruit produced there. Cabernets from the region are known for their power, intensity, and longevity, and very few are obtainable at under $100…

Highlands is a project between two veterans in the industry, Paul Segas, and Dave Cofran. Paul is an experienced grape grower that sold fruit to Chateau Montelena, Robert Mondavi, and Joseph Phelps. Dave has been working as an enologist and winemaker since 1967, and in 1984 he joined Silver Oak as GM.

This 2018 Howell Mountain Reserve Cabernet is made in a deep, captivating style and offers powerful intensity presented with elegance and length. The blend is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and is enjoyable now and cellar for more than a decade.

2018 HIGHLANDS RESERVE HOWELL MOUNTAIN CABERNET SAUVIGNON

"The Highlands Reserve Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 immediately shows you a little bit of its restrained youth, but all while teasing you with what is to come as it opens up in the glass... just what you would expect from a young mountain cabernet. The nose begins with black raspberries, dried mushrooms, white flowers, earthy minerals, cocoa powder, and vanilla hints. Then the palate has focused black currants, wild cassis, crushed rocks, satiny mountain tannins, and deep spices. The finish is concentrated, elegant, and long. Drink over the next 12 - 15 years.

"Full and powerful nose and deep ruby/garnet color in this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon drives anticipation. Vibrant aromas of cherry, red berries, vanilla, and gentle oak tantalize the nose and set a chocolate, cream-like expectation on the palate. Followed with a full and lush sense of sweetness on each sip carrying blackberry and earthy, smoky notes even more cocoa cream lasting finish. Sophisticated!"
