TN: 2008 Outpost Cabernet Sauvignon (USA, California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain)

  • 2008 Outpost Cabernet Sauvignon - USA, California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain (8/29/2011)
    Pop and pour drank over 4 hours (during a blackout). Some cherries to go along with some really rich darker fruits. Decent acidity and while it is noticeably tannic the tannins are very smooth making this great to drink now. Surprisingly lush and open for mountain fruit. FWIW I think this one is a notch above the Rivers-Marie from the same same year at this stage. Best cab I have had this year. (93 pts.)
