Description 

Hightower Cellars Red Mountain Red
Oscar Wilde quipped that "consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative." No wine maker would accuse Mother Nature of being unimaginative. Every year is different. We want our wines to be consistently great, but not consistently the same - here at Hightower we strive to make the best wines we can from each vintage.The vintage was an atypical vintage for Washington State - it was one of the coolest years on record. The cooler vintage required longer hang time before harvest and preserved a bright, healthy acid structure in the grapes. This wine is impressive and substantial, it is rich and opulent, concentrated and intense. This is a wine to savor - it lingers on your senses and makes you think. It gives aromas of Italian black plum, cassis, cocoa, cedar and vanilla and has chewy but controlled tannins. Somewhere between silk and velvet in texture. This is still young wine that will benefit from further aging.

Bottle Size: .750
