    December 24, 2018 - Much improved since I last toyed around with this wine in early Spring. After about an hour of air, this gorgeous Cabernet really started to open up and develop complex flavors, wave after wave over the palate. Blackberry, blueberry, black raspberry, black licorice, asphalt, campfire, river rock, and black mulch. The minerality here is especially elevating, hurling the massive black core along a powerful trajectory that coats the mouth front front to back. The finish is hauntingly gothic and beautifully long.

    The final sips were the best. Hold for another year+ if you can.

    November 22, 2018 - Consistently fabulous. Drank on Thanksgiving again a 2013 Quivet Beckstoffer Las Piedras and a slightly overmatched 2014 Carter Fortuna vineyard.

    This was easily the wine of the night for everyone at the table. Described as “velvet” and “explosive” by guests (competing adjectives, right?). Beautiful blue and black fruit on the nose announces you’re at a different level here. The fruit and tannin are in harmony already but there’s no denying this is a big, bold, layered wine. Pepper and earth mingle with the fruit. The finish lasts a full minute. Exceptional, again.

    October 14, 2018 - Drank next to a 2015 Maybach Materium and a 2012 Frank Family Winston Hill. Dark and tannic nose followed by rich, dense, black and blue fruit on the palate. Tannin, earth and leather interplay with the fruit approximately 50/50. This came in perhaps a nose behind the Maybach Materium but some picked it as the top wine. Very good, very dark, brooding, complex, commanding. Great.

    August 21, 2018 - Nose is a bit closed, dark red fruits, cherry, raspberry, plum, cassis, cinnamon, violets, vanilla, silky smooth palate with fine gritty tannins on the finish. Perfect balance as usual, extremely good.

    April 28, 2018 - Another Coravin pour. Seems to have moved along to a riper stage with some air. I had a Coravin issue with a Quivet LPV at the same time last week when I hit this bottle too; so, maybe there was some unwanted air influence from the Coravin with this Outpost as well. Hmm.....
