Tasting notes

On the attack the 2020 Outlaw offers whiffs of mineral, forest floor, dark chocolate, blackberry jam, and Asian spice plus a kiss of sweet vanilla, leading to an explosion of plum, black cherry, blackberry and mocha latte, all enrobed in silky tannins. Delicious now and guaranteed to deliver the goods for some 20 (30? 40?) plus years.

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.
