A deep, powerful Syrah-based blend from 2007. Even though this has a bit of age on it, there is a lot of fruit, oak, and tannin - this is not a wine to be trifled with. Calls out for some hearty food, or at least a very cold winter night. 100 cases, aged 24 months in French and American oak.
Outcast/Caravel was started by three friends from three distant places that shared a passion for California wine. In the summer of 2010, Caravel, their inaugural effort, was received with excitement and exceptional success. Shortly thereafter, the team ventured into the premium wine space with Outcast. They've created something very special in showcasing the best of California varietals while maintaining a heightened sense of terroir and value. We love their labels, but we like their wine even more.More from this winery
