Halloween is a great holiday to get festive. In the spirit of the holiday I have chosen some appropriate wines. I'm not anywhere near a sommelier but I do like to enjoy a nice glass of wine once in a while.
The Velvet Devil (2008) is a full bodied Merlot. It is smooth and, yes, velvety. It has notes of bittersweet chocolate, cherries, and rose petal. I really enjoyed this wine and for the price of $12 it is a great buy.Vampire (2009) Pinot Noir is lighter and has notes of strawberries and oak. It is fruity and easy to drink, but wait for this one to air out. For $10, this is also a good buy and goes great for any season.
I recommend The Velvet Devil of the two if you like bold wines like I do. Either way, these will spruce up any ghoulish event, or a Twilight party, perhaps?
