GDP's California Zinfandels

62. Outpost Zinfandel Howell Mountain (2011)

Fair amount of wood here, making this spicy on the nose and rich with vanilla, chocolate and coffee bean aromas. Smooth and polished if dense in the mouth, with nice power behind the slightly leather dark raspberry, blackberry fruit that's framed with oak and earth notes. This finishes with lots of power and richness, but it’s also quite tannic and dry at the same time. A bit heavy-handed. 88 points

They only produce 4 varietal of Reds, Merlot, Syrah, Cab, and Zin, and they don't sell anything less that 9 years old. Currently working on their 2003 vintage. They are located at 5185 Union Road, across the street from Pear Valley. The owner is from Italy, and makes his own pasta and sauce, sausage, and salami, which he serves in his restaurant, which is on site. His fresh pizza's are to die for. If you haven't been there you need to try it, his wines are soooo smooth.
