Halloween parties used to be glorious extravaganzas consisting of pillowcases full of candy — plus a few raisins from evil people — and a mountain of Dew. Our options are a little more devilish as adults. We’re still filling our pillowcases with candy, but we’ve swapped all those cans of Dew for bottles wine. I’d say we definitely come out on top as adults. Here are a few spooky Halloween wines that will make you the coolest cat in the coven.
Apothic Inferno Red Blend
Dr. Frankenstein was playing with fire when he threw this wine into whiskey barrels to age for an additional 60 days. Thankfully this time it worked out much better.
The Prisoner Red Blend
This isn’t an ordinary jailbird. It’s a brilliant mastermind who could only be caught by the likes of Sean Spencer and Ghee Buttersnaps. What more could you want out of Halloween wines?
Fine Print Syrah
Even the bastard lovechild of Stephen King and Edgar Allen Poe couldn’t write a horror story more terrifying than Fine Print. You should definitely agree to drink this wine.
Gato Negro Cabernet Sauvignon
There hasn’t been a black cat more poised to take over the world since Salem, the future dictator turned feline from Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
Velvet Devil Merlot
This potent devil is as dark as it is decadent, exploding with dark fruit and tobacco. It’s a Halloween wine that would gladly Paul Giamatti’s character in Sideways.
Borne of Fire Cabernet Sauvignon
This fruity and spicy wine fittingly comes from a region named “The Burn.” What better potion to drink while dancing around the witch’s cauldron.
Witching Hour Red Blend
This crisp and sweet wine pours nearly as black as the magic that occurs during its namesake timeframe, making it perfect for your own witching hour affairs.
Ravage Cabernet Sauvignon
Smoke and spice and everything nice bubble out of this eerily deep purple pour that must have been named for its interaction with the palate.
