2006 Outpost Howell Mountian Zinfandel

SKU #1044362

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Brambly red berries, spices and sage on the wild nose. Juicy and bright, with harmonious acidity giving cut to the red berry fruit. Became a bit creamier as it opened in the mouth. This lively zin should put on weight with aging. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and very good energy." (May/June '09) 90 points Robert Parker: "The 2006 Zinfandel is a classic mountain Zinfandel revealing plenty of minerality, spice, herb, and pepper notes along with copious quantities of black raspberry and kirsch fruit. Full-bodied with admirable grip and focus, and no hard edges, it can be drunk over the next 3-4 years. This beautiful 40-acre estate (19 of which are under vine) high on Howell Mountain enjoys a sensational view of Napa Valley and the Mayacamas Mountains to the west. The renowned Thomas Brown is the winemaker. There are only around 300+ cases of the Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and significantly less of the single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon True Vineyard." (12/08) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, muscle-bound and loaded with cracked pepper. Offers aromas of huckleberry, raspberry and fresh sage, with tightly wound loam, pencil lead and licorice flavors that finish with rustic tannins. Needs time. Best from 2010 through 2015. Tasted twice, with consistent notes." (05/09)
