Our Red Wine Blend reflects an artist’s palette of various varietals that each contributes a unique flavor component to the finished blend. Aged in French/American Oak barrels up to 16 months. Ripe rich Zinfandel was used to provide spice and intense fruit. Petite Sirah grapes were added for a bold luscious flavor. Finished with some Cabernet for some dark crimson color.
Artfully Blended with Iconic California Varietals. Aromas of Wild Berries and Toasted Oak with Intense Black Fruit Flavors accented with Spicy, Smoky Notes. Richly Textured, Full Bodied and Powerful.
Tough enough for any BBQ. Yet fefined enough for Filet Mignon.
The 2012 vintage of Red wine varietals experienced some outstanding growing conditions. This Harvest yielded generous amounts of high quality fruit. Moderate weather throughout the growing season has put little pressure on the vines, and provided grapes with well-balanced chemistries.
Varietals: 43% Mendocino Zinfandel, 43% Lodi Zinfandel, 9% California Petite Sirah, 5% California Cabernet
The discovery of amazing California fruit in Mendocino, Lodi and Sonoma Counties was the inspiration behind the creation of Two Horns, A Mean Red Blend.

BLUF: Bold, great aroma upon opening, smooths out a little with some breathing, excellent house red wine. In for a case.
I’m not much of a writer or reviewer, so I’ll make this brief.
Received the wine last week, and immediately recognizing it for what it was (lab rat), decided to go ahead and do my tasting that night.
I’ve had this wine before, purchased from Woot, and I had recalled that we enjoyed it. Upon opening I took a long sniff, just to jog my memory, and there it was - that strong “red” smell of maybe smoky berries, and my first sip confirmed, that, yes, indeed, I had enjoyed this before.
It would pair well with beef, but that evening I had pasta with pesto sauce. Still a decent pairing, as I thought that the fruity / spicy taste offset the pesto well.
Finished the second glass with dessert - dark chocolate covered pretzels. This was definitely a winner, as the wine had smoothed out a bit, and the juicy, fruity taste was definitely well paired with the dark chocolate.
This is a great “house red” wine - awesome price, buy it and drink it with a steak!
Bear with me, this is my first Lab Rat Report. Apologies it is so late. The box arrived with no paperwork and I assumed it was either birthday wine (Taurus here - Two Horns, the bull…honest mistake, right?) or my consolation launch party shirts substitute. I never received the Lab Rat email. Good thing I checked with Support! So exciting, thanks for this opportunity.
Anyway - the wine. Plastic cork. I poured a glass and took my first sip 30 minutes later. Color is deep garnet, fairly opaque, with surprisingly little (actually no) legs.
Smells of oak, maybe cedar, berry, and a bit musty.
Taste is fruit forward with cherries and leather. Tannic bite on the back of my tongue, and a tart finish. I had more with dinner (spicy Mexican) and the wine held up well. It also smoothed out quite a bit with more time. Best pairing was with a Panera Kitchen Sink cookie for dessert.
Summary: This wine is just okay, and better consumed with food.
