The first vintage of the Maverick we’ve ever made, this baby is crafted as an homage to our one-and-only Head Smuggler and wine maverick extraordinaire. It’s also now the namesake for the Caldwell Vineyard Maverick Actor Tribute award (so far, awarded to Will Ferrell and Mathew McConaughey). Made to drink now, and best enjoyed in copious quantities, it pairs as well with sophisticated wine dinners as it does with covert backroom deals. With ample ripe, red fruits, it’s got a thread of pomegranate flavor and stick-to-your-ribs, mocha-tinged tannins. The meaty core speaks to its base camp of unmistakable, dyn-o-mite Coombsville Syrah and Cab.
