Today’s Deal ~ 2014 Outcast Chardonnay (Carneros)
$34.95/bottle or $19.95 on 6+
EUREKA! After a brief hiatus the ultimate chardonnay bandit is BACK and with a VENGEANCE! It’s the 2014 Outcast Chardonnay from Carneros and it’s better than ever! Why is it called Outcast? Because the “big dogs” like Rombauer and Frank Family charge well above $35/bottle for essentially the same fruit and don’t want this diamond in the rough to rain on their parade! In fact, Outcast is primarily sourced from the Sangiacomo Vineyard found in those behemoths above as well as Auteur, The Prisoner Wine Co., and Charles Creek Solitude. You see where we are going with this right?
So, it contains solid pedigree fruit…but how does it taste? When it comes to Carneros Chardonnay this little ditty ticks all the boxes. You want fruit? It’s in there! Succulent RIPE pear, JUICY yellow peaches, and TROPICAL papaya. You want body? It’s in there! With superior weight and depth, the flavors of CRÈME BRULEE and CARAMELIZED VANILLA will coat your palate like wet paint. Still need convincing? Try $19.95/bottle on 6+ and SAVE 57% off retail! Do we really need to say anything more?
We were pleasantly surprised last vintage because we brought in five cases and it sold out in no time! Today, we literally brought in a “BOAT LOAD” (56 cases), nearly 1/6th of total production of the 2014 Outcast Chardonnay. Why? Because we knew you would be hard-pressed to find a better-value wine that exudes all the flavors we know and love in a BOLD CHARDONNAY…PERIOD!
Winery Tasting Notes:
“Shows fresh green apple, ripe Bose pear, tropical melon fruit notes with hints of lemon zest on the nose. On the palate it shows beautiful, bright acidity,which is balanced by a creamy, rich texture showcasing flavors of crisp apple,mineral notes and white tropical fruits. The touch of oak gives this Chardonnay some layers on the nose and palate with traces of toasted almonds, vanilla, flint, and spice.”
