2011 Outpost Wines, Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Posted on

Pulled this out of the cellar for our Friday night stand alone and outstanding wine: Outpost Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2011. Robert Parker gave it 95 points and stated “The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in 75% new French oak) reveals attractive scents of blackberries, black currants, charcoal and graphite, full-bodied flavors with impressive richness, a long, opulent mouthfeel and a heady finish“. Definitely spot on with the aromas and flavors. A great way to end the week. For more on Outpost wines see a previous story at: https://californiawinesandwineries.com/2015/12/20/outpost-wines/

Sláinte,
