2013 Mans Best Blend

Red Blend from California

About

Man’s Best Blend is named for Harold Casto’s 8 year old white lab Tilly. Every day and most nights Harold and Tilly patrol the vineyard and monitor the progress of the grapes.

Whether it’s surveying crop size, checking clusters for ripeness or just enjoying an evening stroll, Harold and Tilly leave no stone unturned. 

Man’s Best Blend is comprised of 40% Cabernet and 20% Merlot from the Casto vineyards and 40% Syrah from the Lyons Hunter’s Valley vineyards.

Aged 16 months in 20% new and 80% neutral American oak, it is our most full bodied wine and is rich and dark, saturated with ripe cherry, tart cranberry and boysenberry flavor.

It pairs ideally with heavy protein based dishes such as beef or lamb, or is the perfect accompaniment for an evening stroll with your best friend.

Bottle aged 12 months, drink now through 2030.  pH 3.5, abv 14.4%. 132 cases produced.
