We’re nearly to mid-November. Cool nights. Crisp Saturdays. Thoughts of what’s to come. Thanksgiving. Family. Christmas parties, gifts, more family, celebrating. Maybe an evening of solitude in front of the fire.

Red wine. Particularly, Cabernet Sauvignon.

We’ll be tasting six Cabernets. Some will be BIG. Some will be BOLD. Some will be LUSCIOUS. All will be DELICIOUS (and some will be limited quantities).
There is a $5 tasting fee for this event.

And when you are here, you can place your pre-order for the 2014 Higher Education Reserve Cab Series which features one bottle each of these Napa Howell Mountain Cabernets:

The Scholar
The Graduate
The Valedictorian
The PH.D.

Quantities are limited. Price: $499.99

About The Reserve Series

With each exceptional vintage we explore a specific sub-appellation in the Napa Valley and showcase its uniqueness, finesse, and power. For the 2014 vintage we focused on Howell Mountain, specifically a vineyard located at one of its highest elevations. These wines champion the balanced expression of Howell Mountain, where smooth structured tannins, excellent natural acidity, and layered complexity add sophistication to the intensity of the mountain fruit. Each was aged in French Oak Barrels for two years and then spent one year in the bottle before release. Future vintages will explore the great regions of Oakville and Rutherford. This wine is sold in a gorgeous wood box that contains one of each of the unique blends and allows the customer to enjoy something incredibly delicious, amazingly unique, and extremely rare. An excellent gift for recent grads, educators, wine aficionados who love to learn about different wines and micro sites.
