I’m celebrating that we are Halfway to Halloween, my favorite holiday! Last year I featured 31 nights of Hallowines, and it was quite an undertaking. This year I’m likely cutting down to featuring my favorite 13... what are your favorite spooky wines?
As a subtle nod to spooky, I’m sharing this gorgeous Dragon’s Tooth red blend from Trefethen and it is one of my absolute favorites!
This is a big bold Napa blend with notes of blackberry, plum, chocolate covered blueberries, clove and a hint of campfire smoke. On the palate, ripe and juicy dark fruit, blackberry jam, dark chocolate, cardamom and the tiniest hint of pepper on the finish. 49% Malbec, 27% Petit Verdot and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium+ finish and soft velvety tannins make this easy sipping on its own, but this beast of a wine pairs incredibly well with hearty food.
