Thought this might be past it's prime but what was once a young uncontrollable tiger has developed into the wise old lion that still rules the pride

Outpost PS. interestingly enough; you may want to drink this no later than next year. Very nice and almost oaky.

Still a monster, but starting to open up. Tons of black fruit/brambles. Big tannins. Super ripe.

Black licorice, black plums, smooth tannins that opened up after about 60 min.

Hedonistic nose. Gamey peppery and seductive nose with some salty herbaceousnees along with darker and sweeter entry. More rounded than I thought for an 11. Robust mouthfeel, sure to improve over the next few years. Bit this is a wine to hold over the next 10 or so years without a doubt. @Shay A , Novotny opened this about 10 minutes after you left. It was good, but I was expecting a lot more from a Howell Mountain PS!

Couldn’t help myself. Silky smooth. 15.5% abv, but you hardly notice it. So ridiculously purple, so ridiculously good
