Highlands Merlot, Oak Knoll, Napa Valley - Silver Oak alumni - What Merlot Should Taste Like!
From a Silver Oak alumni partnering with a long time high end grapegrower (Chateau Montelena), Highlands Wines believes that quality wine making begins in the vineyard.
With 70 years of experience between them, Paul and Dan focus on small lot production using inspired and uncompromising winemaking techniques that express the finest fruit and terroir of each vintage.
This single vineyard wine, 100% Merlot, is richly colored, spicy nose, bright cherry fruit and jasmine wildflower. Acidity with a soft vanilla finish. What Oak Knoll Merlot’s are known for from the 'Sweet Spot' of Napa Valley.
Savory foods, grilled meats and hard cheeses are excellent pairings that benefit from the softer tannic structure of our food friendly Merlot. We particularly enjoy it with chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce.
