While the cauldron might be bubbling, Halloween themed wines might be the spooky sip that is not too frightening. Unlike those creepy cocktails, a few favorite bottles have embraced the season with their offerings.
Halloween has become a huge deal for all ages. Even as the kids fill their bags with candy, adults do not want to be left out of the fun. Luckily, a few brands have embraced that spooky side.
19 Crimes might have a touch of the dark side with their torrid tales on the label, but this Halloween they invited classic characters to join the conversation. A special collaboration Universal Monsters has even non-traditional wine drinkers grabbing a bottle just for the label.
The special seasonal offering features Frankenstein and Dracula. While these bottles might not be found at Halloween Horror Nights, the label visual has many people making these wines the feature of their Halloween celebration.
The special designs glow in the dark. It might not necessarily be a beacon of light to get people through a creepy maze, but it will stand out while watching those scary movies.
While people love the label, the wine is what drinkers have come to expect from 19 Crimes. The Frankenstein offering is a cabernet sauvignon and Dracula bottle is a red blend. The suggested retail price for each bottle is $18.
While these offerings from 19 Crimes are special for the season, Spellbound wines brings a that magical experience all year long. The California based winery has approachable, yet complex wines that could have drinkers feeling a little mystified.
The winery offers a Chardonnay, Petite Sirah, and a Cabernet Sauvignon. With all the candy around Halloween, consider opening a bottle and enjoy some of those treats from the bowl. Whether it is some candy corn with the Chardonnay or a dark chocolate with the Cabernet Sauvignon, there are many possibilities.
The Spellbound Wines have a retail price around $15. That value is definitely not a trick.
For wine drinkers who are willing to splurge a little more, the limited offering Flora Springs 2021 All Hallows’ Eve Cabernet Franc is definitely worth the splurge. This wine is quite complex and deserves a leisurely evening to enjoy the full-bodied wine. From fruits like black cherry and wild blackberry to a touch of black tea, it will captivate in the most delightful way. The Flora Springs 2021 All Hallows’ Eve Cabernet Franc has a suggested retail price of $75.
These ideas are just a few of the many Halloween inspired wines on the shelf. The only thing terrifying about wine drinking for the season is having an empty glass.
