Even better is the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon True Vineyard, one of the candidates for wine of the vintage. It, too, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and is given the same basic elevage as the other wines except the percentage of new French oak increases to 90%. There are 375 cases of this beauty, which may be the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon Outpost has made to date. Abundant notes of creme de cassis, blueberry, acacia flowers (or is it violets?), licorice and wet stones are followed by a full-bodied, superbly concentrated, multidimensional, endearingly textured wine with low acidity and ripe tannin. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. (RP)
One of the indisputably great wines of the vintage, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon True Vineyard is just as fabulous from bottle as it has always been from barrel. Rich, explosive and voluptuous, yet also backed up by considerable structure, the 2011 stands out for its exceptional balance and polish. Mocha, plum, black cherry, cassis, and graphite notes inform the rich, intense mid-palate. The 2011 finishes with a stunning combination of huge fruit and pure power. 95+ (AG)
Deep ruby-red. Sexy, exotic perfume of raspberry, blueberry, mocha and woodsmoke. Densely packed flavors of dark berries, flowers and minerals are nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Really wonderfully fat for 2011 cabernet, finishing with serious broad, ripe tannins and outstanding persistence. I don't think I would have identified the vintage here, as this is a real outperformer. And the crop size was good too, as this high-altitude vineyard flowered after the early June rains.
