Delivered in time for Halloween
Legend has it that before Dracula vanished from this physical world that we know, he left behind his legacy in some special soil in the land that is known today as Romania. It had been ordained that around the turn of the new millennium a company of mortals would arise from his ashes and bring forth his essence once again.
That time has arrived, and the legend has survived.
2010 Dracula's Blood Pinot Noir 750ml 6-Pack
Powerful forest fruit and wild strawberry aromas persist on the nose. The vibrant ruby red colors hint at a young wine, but the taste reveals a remarkable maturity. Elegant soft fruit flavors are already finely integrated into the structure of the wine, as is the oak, adding a subtle but powerful complexity to the flavor and providing a nice mid-palate and soft finish. This is a light smooth wine, easy to drink at any time of the year and exhibiting typical character of a young Pinot Noir. Vampire Pinot Noir is well-suited to venison and game dishes, and is equally well adapted to pasta dishes featuring basil and tomato sauces. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif or as an after dinner wine with Belgian milk chocolate and blue cheeses.
2010 Dracula's Blood Merlot 750ml 6-Pack
Smooth and medium-bodied with a fresh, black cherry aroma, and hints of herbal spices. Aged in oak, this Merlot develops graceful fruit flavors in the cellar, complemented by subtle shadings of vanilla and toast from the oak. Approachable now, Vampire Merlot has a long, rich finish and is perfectly balanced for additional bottle aging. Pairs well with a wide range of foods, especially chicken, beef, lamb, game, and pasta with tomato-based sauces.
