History
Husch has seen several generations of family over the years, and this bottling is dedicated to fourth-generation grandchild Morgan Joseph (Mojo). Mojo has been in and about the winery since he could walk. Now age 21, he helps with bottling and other winery tasks! It is no surprise that the Mojo Red has developed a loyal following; high quality wine from a local producer at an affordable price is rare.

Winemaking
Winemakers always have a blast making the Mojo Red. With no fixed rules, the winemaking team is free to use their artistic vision in composing this harmonious and drinkable red wine. In 2022, Zinfandel composes the backbone of this wine, supplemented with some of our estate Carignane from Garzini Ranch. With careful barrel selection they created a wine that properly represents Mendocino Red Wine.

Tasting Notes
Much like Mojo, this wine is bright, lively, and remarkably mature. Bramble fruit notes of raspberry and boysenberry jam are accompanied by subtle hints of clove and dried oregano. Fine and subtle tannins make this a smooth and easy-drinking red wine for any season. Hard to find outside of Mendocino County, this excellent value will reward our locals and those “in the know.” Enjoy with a Portobello mushroom burger, smoked brisket, or a big bowl of nonna’s famous spaghetti.
