Thomas Rivers Brown, one of Napa’s most accomplished winemakers, is the guiding force behind Outpost’s gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon, made from grapes hand-harvested at dawn, late in the season to preserve full intensity. Blue fruits, ample minerality and some lovely mountain scrub brush notes flow to an elegant finish.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain comes mostly from the estate vineyard (there’s a small part from the True vineyard) and it appears to be a classic Howell Mountain Cabernet. Blue fruits, ample minerality, and some violet and mountain scrub brush notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, layered 2017 that has fine tannins and a terrific sense of elegance.
