    November 23, 2018 - Savory, large aromatics, cloudy in glass, medium viscosity but huge mouthfeel. Enveloping black cherry, ripened strawberry (nearly rotted) and plum. Spice driven finish and lingering for nearly 1 minute. Awesome wine which really could rival a Sine Qua Non Grenache. Outstanding value

    November 28, 2017 - A great gift from from friends we had over for a glass of wine. Really enjoy Outpost wines, and this variety and vintage just confirmed our view. We don’t drink much Grenache but this bottle may change our minds - smooth and plenty of fruit. It probably will gain depth with some age but I wouldn’t hesitate to drink it now. A nice change of pace and very enjoyable.

    November 12, 2017 - Lush red fruit- ripe plums and nectarines. Almost candied. Good acid and a medium long finish with fall herbs.

    April 6, 2017 - Dark rose, light plum color in glass. Clear through. Legs in glass describing high abv. Nose surprisingly quiet, some lavender - might be youth or still closed and developing? Delicious palate and full mouthfeel, soft tannins followed by acid in back of mouth. Sweet cherry, strawberry jam, spicy sponge cake, touch of earth. Good length, very good drinking now.
