"Leading off the wines from bottle, the 2015 Zinfandel (100% Zinfandel brought up in one-third new oak) boasts a deep purple color as well as textbook notes of blueberry, plum, white pepper and incense. With full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, and a ripe, perfumed style, it’s killer Zinfandel to drink over the coming decade."

"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Zinfandel bursts forth with a gregarious black cherry, raspberry preserves and mulberries nose plus hints of spice cake, dusty earth, dried herbs and black olives. Full-bodied, rich and plush in the mouth, it fills the palate with baking spice and fruitcake notions, finishing long and chewy. 1,120 cases produced."

"Outpost's 2015 Zinfandel packs a serious punch. Inky black fruit, chocolate and spice are pushed forward in this decidedly explosive, structured Zinfandel. Today, the 2015 is a bit rough around the edges, but all the elements are present to allow the wine to come together in bottle."

Outpost Estate Wines

VINEYARD: This Zinfandel is all hand-harvested from Outpost's organically-farmed estate vineyard, which sits on top of Howell Mountain at 2,200 feet above Napa Valley. The unique terroir here is defined by hard, rocky red soil, high altitude, gentle cooling breezes and sunny western exposure.

VINIFICATION: Grapes from each block within the vineyard are fermented separately. The wine is fermented and aged in French oak barrels: 1/3 new, 2/3 neutral. The wine is neither fined nor filtered.
