Outpost Howell Mountain Grenache 2017

$54.99

Rare release from Outpost and superstar winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown. 91 Points Robert Parker: "The Outpost 2017 Grenache is made from 100% Alban clone 2 Grenache and spent 14 months in neutral oak. It reveals a pale to medium garnet-purple color with fantastically intense raspberry tart, Morello cherries and redcurrant jelly scents plus underlying wafts of roses, tilled soil and Ceylon tea. Full-bodied and firmly structured, with bags of bright, crunchy red berry flavors, it has a plush texture and a lively backbone, finishing long and perfumed. 342 cases were made." 91 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lots of white pepper, candied orange, red plums, and meaty, spicy notes emerge from the 2017 Grenache. It’s a classic expression of Outpost Grenache, playing in the savory, medium-bodied, elegant end of the spectrum. It can be drunk today or cellared for 10-12 years."

Distinctive and aromatic! Wild strawberry, rose potpourri, chicken feed, mint and cinnamon. Light in body and clear at the edge. All my wine geekiness chortled in excitement.

Just received the 2017 vintage. Strong floral aroma with strawberry taste. Very young to drink but I wanted to give it a try. Will let it cellar for a few years before trying again.

Lighter in its feet than other vintages, but in a good way. Cran-Strawberries with a dash of cream.
