Outpost Wines

Situated high atop Howell Mountain, 2,200 feet above the floor of the Napa Valley, it's easy to see the inspiration, and natural wonder that is the essence of Outpost Wines. Outpost was established in 1998 with the mission of producing wines that are a living, breathing embodiment of this piece of extraordinary land. The unique confluence of environmental factors at the Outpost vineyards - the volcanic, rocky red soil, high altitude, gentle cooling breezes and sunny western exposure - produces fruit of incredible complexity and richness, with a distinct mountain palette you simply can't find anywhere else. Capturing the essence of the land's rugged terrain, Outpost creates world-class Zinfandel, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah from our own hand-cultivated, organically farmed 42 acre estate vineyards. The guiding principle of our wine-making program is to realize the full potential of this piece of ground, to create a living history of vintages with immense character and a true Read more »

  • Outpost Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2005


    Slightly disappointing It took a while to open, which improved the wine.....But I expected more for the price. Not typical Howell Mountain. Not much of a nose and a tad bit too much wood....almost a musty European style nose. The wine almost tasted like a Zin Cab hybrid. The tannins softened after an hour, and it was a decent bottle of wine...... Read More

  • Peter Lehmann Drawcard Shiraz Mataro 2010 AUD$25. This is the first time I have seen this label from PL, and thought it reasonably priced to warrant a go. It pours a crimson black colour with a dark ruby rim, and boasts an attractive, medium weighted nose of violets and blackcurrant fruit. The aromas are clean, with no distractions in the backgr...

  • Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More
