Tasting notes

Outlaw leads with sultry aromas of black cherries, blackberry jam, vanilla, tealeaves, piecrust and licorice. On the palate, rich red and black fruit flavors of plum, bing cherry, blackberry lead to cinnamon, menthol and crème brulée, all supported by silky tannins and a bright, mouthwatering acidity that carries the wine to a how-is-this-still-going-on finish, with hints of maple, cedar and sweet spice. 

Food pairing: Lamb burgers with boursin or eggplant and porcini Shepherd’s pie
Movie pairing: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

One of the Three Original Wines, Outlaw was a single barrel of merlot from Hedges Vineyard in 2004. The wine was made to honor Kelly's Dad who suggested that we start a family business when we found out we were going to be parents. Outlaw is not necessarily produced in every vintage, having been released from 2004-2007, 2009, and 2014-2015. Because merlot is so damn delicious, we think the producers of the movie Sideways are on their way to hell.
