Highlands Zinfandel, Oakville, Napa Valley - Classic, oak, intense. Silver Oak alumni here.
From a Silver Oak alumni partnering with a long time high end grapegrower (Chateau Montelena), Highlands Napa Valley 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, with its gorgeous red color, has a rich and complex nose of dark fruit and cherries. Subtle hints of oak hit the palate with smoky spice and fruit complexities. A balanced acidity and soft tannins form a lasting finish that delights while delivering lingering vanilla oak and spice.
Food pairings include cheese, roast meats, poultry, and pasta but also is comfortable with Asian and South of the Border foods. Bacon, chicken recipes too.
