Product Description

The 2016 Outpost Howell Mountain Zinfandel is a blockbuster by superstar Thomas Rivers Brown, who has crafted the wines almost from the beginning (Ehren Jordan made the initial releases).  Under Thomas’ expert guidance, Outpost grapes are harvested late in the season – by hand, at dawn – to preserve the full intensity and distinctive spicy character of the mountain fruit. The grapes are processed with as little manipulation as possible. Grapes from each block within the vineyard are fermented separately so that the winemaking team can be very selective about the lots that comprise the final blend. Wines are neither fined nor filtered allowing for the full expression of the vintages’ potential.

The estate vineyard is organically farmed.

94 Points - Vinous
"The 2016 Zinfandel is another superb wine from Outpost. Dark, ample and full-bodied, the 2016 is imbued with tremendous character as well as complexity. Dark cherry, plum, chocolate, leather and smoke all build as this super-expressive Zinfandel shows off its personality. In 2016 the Outpost Zinfandel is outrageously beautiful, not to mention a huge overachiever." -AG, Dec/2018

(93-95) Points - Wine Advocate
"A barrel sample, the 2016 Zinfandel sings of crushed blackberries, fruitcake and raspberry preserves notes with touches of potpourri, incense and Indian spices. Full-bodied, velvety, rich and spicy in the mouth, it delivers mouth-filling berry preserves and exotic spice layers, finishing long with some earthy notions coming through. 1,180 cases produced." -LPB, 12/29/17
