Our Hellhound Red Blend is a big and bold red wine, a hellishly delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah to add complexity and richness. Certainly not for the faint of heart. Our newest vintage of the beast!
Hellhound Red Blend. A supernatural dog, mythical in nature, jet black and red with piercing yellow eyes, the guardian of the gates of hell. Legend has it that seeing a hellhound or hearing its howl is ominous. Stare into its eyes three times and death awaits. Just think of what will happen when you drink a glass of Mutt Lynch HellHound. Dark and decadent, a hellishly delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Certainly not for the faint of heart.
Be careful! - Brenda Lynch
Our 2014 HellHound Red Blend opens with a primordial roar of toasty oak and blackberries. This beast then delivers sinfully tempting flavors of blackberries, cherries and dark chocolate. The 2014 HellHound is big, bold and beautiful. Full-bodied, with just the right amount of plush, ripe tannins, our 2014 HellHound leaves you with a finish that will have wanting more, more, more. Consequences be damned!
The Art of Blending. Winemaker Brenda Lynch combines a variety of winemaking tools to create her Hellhound Red Blend - fermentation in open top tanks, hand punch downs and barrel aging in French Oak. Then she blends. To a core of Cabernet Sauvignon she adds small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah to provide additional flavors, complexity and depth.
Food Pairing Notes
For a hellishly delicious pairing, we suggest you go the grill route with your favorite steak cuts. But you can also pair with a hearty pasta Bolognese. We know either will be a supernatural combination!
