Wow, an amazing wine. Not the 100 points Parker gave it but still excellent. Lots of blueberry on the nose and first sips. I could get use to this!

Dense, high extract, very polished, rich and viscous. Packed with ultra ripe blue and black fruits, sweet oak, exotic spices, cocoa. Tannins are ripe and suave without having the muscular nature like β€˜13, they still show the β€˜14 vintage in their graceful character. Did not really get the Howell Mtn mineral note I usually find, perhaps too young to express it?

From the man who brought the delectable world Big Santa (@Martin G Rivard ), I'd like to introduce and thank @Lawrence Rozenberg (IG: winezmything). He forced me (at gunpoint) to infanticide this baby Outpost he graciously sent and man it's good. I don't normally rate young wine this high! Big structure but smooth and approachable. Rare combination.

100pts might truly be understating the experience of this one! A big bowl of blueberries,blackberries with a finish that has exceeded the typing of this note. Yum

2014 and so approachable! Jammy, a little dry, chocolatey , something ashy- like pencil lead- beautiful finish. Looking forward to trying again after a little more rest & a decant. But I'm definitely inπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ·!
