Wine for your Halloween chocolate stash

Published by at 2:31 PM under Red Wines,Savvy Sip Tips,Wine Pairing

You can drink your favorite blood-red bottle with your secret stash of dark chocolate M&M’s on Halloween. At the party, just tell them all it’s the NV Black Chook Sparkling Shiraz. They’ll never guess from the looks of this dark, frothy bubbly.

Maybe you prefer something as evil as you. A swig of the 2007 Evil Cabernet Sauvignon from South Australia should make you feel warm inside. Are you more open about your dark side? Just grab a bottle of 2007 Bitch Grenache. And if you’re really feeling vicious this Halloween, add the 2006 Norman “The Monster” Zinfandel from Paso Robles, California.

Or maybe subtlety is your thing, a quiet haunting, a frightening little whisper. The 2007 Urban Uco, Torrontes from Cafayete-Salta, Argentina bears a haunting photo on the label. Do you dare taste what’s inside? The 2007 Vina Borgia Garnacha from Campo de Borja, Spain, features something of an apparition as well. Those shivers might have something to do with how good the wine is, or something more…

Still not sure which wine is calling you? Taste them all for free 4-8 p.m. October 31 at Just Grapes. It’s the perfect warmup to a chilling evening. No tricks–this is all treat. Muwahahahaha!!!!!!
