2015 Hightower Reserve: "There’s a sense of polish and depth here with ripe dark cherries and chocolate on the nose. The palate is smoothly arranged in a long, fresh style that offers a wealth of potential. A blend of 86% cabernet sauvignon and 14% malbec. Drink or hold." 93pts
2015 Hightower Cabernet Sauvignon: "A very ripe and somewhat earthy nose with rich dark-berry and plum-cake aromas that lead to a cassis-flavored palate that has long, succulent fruit presence. A blend of 85% cabernet sauvignon 8% malbec and 7% cabernet franc. Drink in the next six years." 91pts
2015 Hightower Merlot: "A brambly array of redcurrants, cassis and poached red plums, laced with herbal, sappy notes. The palate has a smooth array of fine, supple tannins that are riper through the finish. 91% merlot and 9% cabernet sauvignon. Drink in the next five years." 90 pts
