Outpost "True Vineyard" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From a single nine acre parcel, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon True Vineyard exhibits extraordinary aromas of acacia flowers and violets along with an irrefutable minerality, an abundance of blueberry and blackberry fruit, outstanding texture, full-bodied richness, great depth, and ripe tannin. This Cabernet will benefit from four to six years of cellaring, and should evolve for 40 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Full ruby. Precise aromas of dark berries, crushed rock, licorice and violet, plus a whiff of white flowers. Sweet, intensely flavored and deep, with a slightly exotic cast to its ripe fruit flavors. A serious wine from a relative cool site, unusually voluptuous in 2007 but with a strong underlying tannic spine calling for considerable patience. From vines planted on bedrock.
