“The Mutt” was inspired by Maya and Sophie, our beloved rescue dogs. “The Mutt,” like Maya and Sophie, is playful, unique and interesting. The grapes used are the “seconds”—what we don’t use in our premium wines, we salvage and use in “The Mutt.” Maya and Sophie aren’t shy about their pedigrees, and we’re not shy about using “seconds,” either, because they make a wine made from premium grapes very affordable and tasty, too. So come take a walk on the wild side—this Merlotful red blend will have you running through the vineyards, leaping for joy!

This wine has a deep brick red color with dark red edges. The aromas jump out of the glass conveying concentrated fruit, extended barrel aging in French oak. Intense boysenberry and cinnamon spices upfront are backed by vanilla and brown sugar notes. The palate is rich with ripe cherry, plum and sandalwood and finish with dry tannins. The grapes come from Rutherford in the heart of the Napa Valley and it is comprised of Merlot, Malbec, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
