Halloween Wines

At our yearly Halloween Bash we serve two kinds of sangria, white and red, margaritas, beer, and wine. In the past we have had more takers of margaritas, but these days everyone wants wine. A tasting of Halloween themed wines at Savvy Cellar inspired me to have some at our party.

2009 Owen Roe, "Sinister Hand", Columbia Valley, Rhône Blend

This was part of Savvy Cellars Halloween flight. I found it for $21.99 from K&L.

2007 Dracula, Santa Maria Valley, Pinot Noir

I found this googling for Halloween wines. I bought it in a 3 pack of Halloween Pinots from for $64.95. I see it sell for $34.95 from

2010 Vampire, California, Pinot Noir

I also found this at in the 3 pack. Searches show it retails for $10.

2007 True Blood, Santa Maria Valley, Pinot Noir

This too was part of the 3 pack. lists this for $29.95.

2007 Chateau Du Vampire, Paso Robles, Cabernet Sauvignon

I also found this on for $27.95. I would have preferred a Pinot from Chateau Du Vampire, but they didn't offer one.

I have only tasted the Sinister Hand. We'll see what the guests think.
