  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Full medium ruby. Cassis, blueberry, licorice, violet and pepper on the nose. Juicy, spicy and tightly wound, conveying a distinctly imploded quality to the flavors of blue fruits, menthol, minerals and pepper. The tannins are big, broad and a bit youthfully tough, but there's sneaky length here and piquant finishing notes of violet and minerals. For the cellar.

    Outpost's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain shows good depth and fine balance in the restrained style that is typical of the year on Howell Mountain. Tobacco, licorice, mint and black fruit are some of the many notes in the glass. Today, the 2010 doesn't quite have the pure palate presence of the very finest vintages. If the wine blossoms in bottle, though, it may merit a higher rating.

    Actually a 2009. Miss-marked by Vinfolio. Great wine. Perfect point in its life. Fresh, with good grip. Ripe but not overripe. Heavy sediment. If drunk down the road it should develop tertiary characteristics, but why wait?

Howell Mountain provides a true "outpost" for these wines, with rocky soil, cool breeze, and a stunning view. At an altitude of 2,100 feet above the Napa Valley floor, owners Terry and Juli Pringle grow Zinfandel, Cabernet, Petit Sirah, and Grenache, all organically. The debut vintage was the 1998 100% Znfandel, which garnered a 93-point score from The Wine Spectator. Thomas Brown is the full time winemaker, and Ehren Jordan, winemaker at Turley Wine Cellars, consults. A second project, True Vineyard, debuts in 2008 with a Bordeaux blend estate wine.
