Looking for some ghoulishly good wines for Halloween? Here's a collection of some tasty and affordable wines that are worth getting your claws on. Why should the kiddos have all the fun?
Casillero del Diablo (The Devil's Cellar) has long been known as the official wine of Halloween. This Cabernet has a deep, intense ruby red color and flavors of cherries, plums, and black currants. It pairs nicely with a blood-red steak of course. Zombie Zin is deep purple in color with bursts of berries and just a touch of black pepper on the finish. Pairing suggestions include bloody BBQ and sinister soups.
19 Crimes The Banished is the darkest wine I have ever seen. This wine boasts flavors of chocolate and vanilla with forest fruits on the finish. Be sure to download the 19 Crimes app and watch the label come to life! Stella Rosa Black is out just in time to celebrate Stellaween. This fun and flirty wine will definitely get the party started. Plus, its slight effervescence makes it a great addition to a big bowl of Sangria.
Apothic Inferno will add a splash of heat to any Halloween party. This limited release wine is aged 60 days in whiskey barrels giving it a unique taste that is most definitely a treat and not a trick. For white wine drinking ghouls and goblins, you can't go wrong with Rest In Peace Pinot Grigio.
No matter how you choose to spend the witching hour, be sure to drink responsibly. No hexing while driving, and hire a driver for your hearse if you've had one too many potions.
