Halloween is the third largest party day of the year in the United States.  This means spirited fun, spooky cocktails and for some, wine.  During holiday seasons wine label choices become a little more festive.  Wine serves double duty during the Halloween season if the wine labels fit in with a darkly sinister theme.  Enjoy sipping the luscious wines chosen and then save the bottles as candleholders for a creatively creepy centerpiece at your Halloween party.

Apothic Red blended wine makes an excellent choice for slightly dark and sinister, yet classy wine label for the season.  Better yet, this affordable wine tastes great.  The flavors come across richly rewarding, deep and bold.  The fruit is lush without becoming overly sweet.

Intoxicologist Notation:I purchased a bottle of Apothic Red Wine just last week to give it a whirl. Last night I finally opened the bottle and completely loved it. Ironically a bottle arrived this morning for review purposes without prior knowledge it was on its way.  This truly is lovely wine at an affordable price with tastefully mysterious label.  It’s perfect for Halloween and an excellent serve for guests.  Enjoy!
