HIGHLANDS Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain, Napa Valley

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Amazingly affordable Howell Mountain Cabernet
  • 2017 vintage harvested before the fires
  • Known for small batch winemaking techniques

WINEMAKER: Bradley Smith; Silenus. 

WHAT WE TASTED:

Full and powerful nose and deep ruby/garnet color in this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon delighted us. Vibrant aromas of cherry, red berries, vanilla, and gentle oak on the nose and a chocolate, cream-like finish on the palate. With a full and lush sense of sweetness on each sip there is an earthy, smoky black berry and even more cocoa cream finish. Sophisticated but very friendly.
