Save $11.00 (20%)
Under the expert guidance of winemaker Thomas Brown, Outpost grapes are harvested very 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 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. Outpost employs sustainable farming practices at every stage of cultivation., resulting in higher quality fruit with expressive consistency each year.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Zinfandel looks to be even better than the 2013. It's slightly richer, with more dense black cherry and briary mountain fruit. The wine shows spice box, earth and a more floral note. Drink now-2022.
