Outpost True Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain|

On another level, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon True Vineyard is 100% Howell Mountain Cabernet that spent 20 months in 80% new French oak. The best blocks of this vineyard suffered due to the heat in the vintage, so this includes more fruit from the deeper soils, hence the wine is more plush and forward, yet no less impressive, and has tons of ripe dark fruit, dark chocolate, roasted herbs, and underbrush-like aromas and flavors. With full-bodied richness, a powerful, mouthfilling texture, and sweet tannins, it’s a brilliant 2017 I’d be thrilled to have in the cellar. Drink bottles any time over the coming 20+ years.
