  • About the Wine:
    Grown in the sunbathed clime of Southern California's Agua Tibia Mountains, this exceptional full-bodied Syrah is intensely dark garnet in color and abundantly rich with earthy, red berry aromas. Coupled with a prevailing spicy oak backdrop, this is a highly structured Syrah, lushly soft and long on the finish.

    This wine exemplifies my approach to what a classic guitar solo should be...and that is so much more than a few perfectly played notes on guitar. A great solo is a multi-faceted guitar melody that shows complexity, balance and demonstrates subtle layered textures that are inviting, persistent, and mature. Much like layering guitar riffs on a Mustaine track, this wine gives that same lift of complexity back, glass after glass.

    Produced & bottled by South Coast Winery, exclusively for Dave Mustaine of Megadeth.
  • About the Vineyard:
    The Lone Boulder Ridge Block of the Wild Horse Peak Estate vineyards is on an east facing slope in the shadow of Wild Horse Peak. At approximately 2,400 feet of elevation, the large granite boulder that is at the ridge top of this vineyard block is a remnant of some gargantuan ledge that fell from the precipitous heights of Wild Horse Peak a millennia ago. Its final resting place now marks the best block of Syrah in all of Southern California. Gravely soils, eroded from centuries of rains, are part of the alluvial strata that slope from Wild Horse Peak to Arroyo Seco Creek and are the heart of Lone Boulder Ridge. A mere ten acre block, we struggle each year along side the vines to gather a scant ton and a half per acre.

This was my first time drinking a Syrah, and I was definitely pleased! I'm not a wine connoisseur by any means so I don't know technical terms of how to describe the taste, but this wine was delicious.

Would love to order but I live in MA. Even though it is now legal to ship here (as of Jan 2015), you guys still don't do this. Guess I won't be able to buy any then. :( -The licensing is in the works and will be obtained in the near future fo the state of Massachusetts. Stay Tuned:)
