It’s that time of year again – the time to jump on to the “everything should have a Halloween theme” bandwagon. Of course we think this means that you should have some spooky labels of wine floating around as well. This year’s picks include:

in the “Perfect Party Wine” category…

7 Deadly Zins Zinfandel -It has the word “dead” in it, and it seems to fit a Halloween theme, so we threw it on the list. Not to mention it’s a fantastic bottle of Zinfandel perfect for fall weather.

Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon – We love this wine for Halloween – it’s easy to drink, with a slightly spooky – yet grown up- label.

apothiclabel1Apothic Red Blend – One of our more popular wines, this red blend seems to be a crowd-pleaser, so we’d definitely recommend it for a Halloween party.

Bogle Phantom – A full-bodied blend, over half of which is Zinfandel (what Bogle does so well), can stand up to all the candy corn in the bowl.

Razors Edge Shiraz – Throwing on some scary movies? Jason? Freddy? Super jammy and concentrated, this is  a cocktail wine at a fantastic value.

In the “Care to Splurge?” category…

dead armd’Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz – One of our favorite producers, one of my personal favorite wines – this Shiraz is complex, powerful and dense, but with lovely uplifting characteristics that linger on the palate. Looking for a reason to have a great wine, toast Halloween with this one.

Terlato Devils’ Peak Red – A red blend from Napa Valley, this full-bodied bottle is oppulent, but structured. Ideal for a Halloween meal.
