2005 Outpost Grenache

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Tuesday, August 7, 2012 - Brought to dinner with xhoser and the locals at Bill's house. This was decanted for 30 minutes prior to leaving the house, so it had been opened approximately an hour and a half by the time it was poured. I tried a sip upon arriving so that I could follow it through the evening. Very surprised at how open it was upon first pour, and it continued to open during the evening. Wonderful nose of red and black fruits and black pepper. I do not find the pepper overpowering as some others have indicated. This clearly is not for everybody, but I loved it last night. Best bottle yet, with one to go. I think I will hold for another year just to see what happens.
