2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
WINE PHILOSOPHY: Highlands Napa Valley believes that quality winemaking begins in the vineyard. We focus on small lot production using inspired and uncompromising winemaking techniques that express the finest fruit, concentration and terroir of each vintage. Bottling wines of intensity and exceptional character demonstrates our commitment to excellence. We appreciate your partnership in our experience of enjoying beautifully handcrafted wines.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is an exemplary food friendly wine with its balance and structure and strong red fruit notes that complements food. Red meats are a favorite, as are medium to hard cheeses, along with mushroom sauces, roasted vegetables, and rich, savory sauces and foods. Deep dark chocolate is also on the menu.
VINTAGE NOTES: The 2014/2015 Napa Valley growing season saw another drought year and a cold spell during early bud break, so yields were down, though quality continues. Early bud break and summer hot spells triggered one of the earliest harvests on record. Because of the drought, berries were smaller and bursting with color and flavor. Our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve reflects that great structure of extracted wine expressed in the bottle.
CELLARING: This structured wine will benefit from ample decant time and can be a cellared for up to five additional years
