“The heavy metal wine label category’s newest entrant took off like “a rocket” last month, according to Fallbrook Winery winemaker Vernon Kindred, who made Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine’s new Mustaine Vineyards Cabernet. Mustaine and his wife, Pam, bought a house near Fallbrook in San Diego County, and a few months ago took a stroll up the winery’s driveway to introduce themselves. What started out as a casual conversation quickly turned into a very real wine project, and Mustaine Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon California Symphony Interrupted Select 2012, priced at $40 a bottle, sold out all 59 cases made in less than 72 hours. “Both Dave and Pam were totally involved in picking the blend, and they chipped in and helped bottle it,” Kindred told Unfiltered. “It turned out to be a really good wine—very drinkable.” The wine was introduced as a “pairing” with Mustaine’s upcoming Symphony Interrupted show with the San Diego Symphony on April 12 (also sold out). “They’ve gained a lot of knowledge [about winemaking],” Kindred said. “They came with a lot of knowledge, and I think they’re going to continue on with more wine projects in the future.” Unfiltered apologizes in advance to all readers in their 30s, who will no doubt have “Symphony of Destruction” stuck in their head for the rest of the week.”
