More about this wine from Williamette Valley, Oregon
After leaving behind a job in finance to pursue his dream of winemaking, André Hueston Mack has made waves in the wine world with his brand Mouton Noir. His approach to winemaking, and the wines themselves, are rather unconventional - "mouton noir," of course, translates to "black sheep."

Horseshoes and Handgrenades is one such example of André's boundary pushing bottles and he only produced 120 barrels of this vino. This red blend is made from grapes of not only two very different appellations, but from two entirely different states. The Oregon Syrah is rich and ripe with a velvety texture while the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Washington State add in a complexity that could otherwise be lacking.
