87. Hightower Cellars 2012 Reserve Red Wine, Red Mountain, $55

hightower-reserveThe husband/wife team of Tim and Kelly Hightower widely use Cabernet Sauvignon from Red Mountain to build the foundation for their Reserve, which opens with tones of chocolate-covered pomegranate, blueberry and lilac.

Rating: Outstanding!
