Reviewing our newest release, The Wine Advocate wrote, "Revealing aromas of dark fruit, pungent cracked pepper, and black olive, the 2015 Murray Syrah is supple, juicy, and medium-bodied, with considerable flavor and character."

Internationally acclaimed wine critic James Suckling recently conducted a tasting of Washington State wines, including 5 Hightower and 1 Murray wine. He seems to have liked what he saw (or rather, tasted):

  • 2014 Hightower Reserve           93 Points
  • 2015 Hightower Petit Verdot      92 Points
  • 2015 Hightower Malbec             90 Points
  • 2014 Hightower Cab Sauv         91 Points 

The four wines above were recent wine club releases. We are sold out of the Reserve and the Malbec, but do have some Cabernet and a couple cases of the Petit Verdot left.

Compass Wines, one of the best wine shops in the US, included our 2013 Red Mountain Merlot in their list of 2017's top 10 red wines in their yearly newsletter. Calling the wine a "slam dunk," we can't help but agree!

Hey, here's an idea: let's make wine! And what a great idea it was! Here we are, celebrating 20 years! The winery is almost old enough to drink! When we think about all that we have created and experienced - starting a winery in Woodinville, buying land on Red Mountain, moving the winery to Red Mountain, planting an estate vineyard, and remodeling and expanding the winery (twice) - we are humbled. We have been part of developing the rapidly expanding Washington WIne Industry and Red Mountain Community. (When we started, we were about the 100th winery in the state. There are now over 900!) It has definitely been a full twenty years; full indeed of love, laughter, and many challenges. But of all that we have learned and accomplished, the very best part has been making great wine for our very dear customers. Here is to the next 20 years!
