Outpost Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is another winner from the genius of Thomas Rivers Brown. This beauty boasts a saturated purple color as well as a huge nose of blueberries, violets, and pine forest-like nuances. Full-bodied, seamless, and layered, with plenty of sweet fruit, it can be drunk today with ample pleasure or cellared for 15+ years." Jan 2019
Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate: "Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for 20 months in French oak, 80% new, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color, slowly revealing profound blackcurrants, baked black cherries, plum preserves and licorice notions with hints of Chinese five-spice, chargrilled meats and tilled earth plus a waft of yeast extract. Full-bodied, firm and grainy with amazing freshness and loads of emerging layers, it finishes very long and wonderfully layered. 1,198 cases were made." Jul 2019
