2010 Outpost "True Vineyard" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $180)

SKU #1154803 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (less than 200 cases made): Good full ruby. Distinctly rocky aromas and flavors of blueberry, minerals and smoke lifted by a minty topnote. Rich, serious and very deep; impressively chewy and tactile, with the rocky character carrying through in the mouth. Finishes youthfully tight, with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and a restrained sweetness. This has been a superb bottling virtually since its first commercial release, the 2005. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (5/2013)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon True Vineyard has a bit more depth and power than the straight Howell Mountain bottling, yet at the same time, it remains medium in body and less explosive than Outpost fans are used to. Scents of violets, menthol and melted road swirl around in the glass, adding complexity and nuance to the dark fruit. An inward wine, the 2010 needs at least a few years in bottle to fully come together. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)
