If you are a Walking Dead fan then you know that Sunday nights are for two things. Hoping your favorite character doesn’t get killed – and The Walking Dead watch parties. I’ve learned not to get attached to any favorite characters – because it’s not good for my mental health…but I might get attached to this wine.
The network behind the smash hit television series, AMC, teamed up with Lot18 to distribute a brand new The Walking Dead Wine Collection. The three wines are all vinted & bottled by TR Wines in Oakville California and are all red wines of some sort. The 3 wines are named after characters from the show. A couple of good guys and one really bad guy.
I know what I’m drinking next Sunday. StiQit won’t save your favorite character from an unfortunate death – but it will save you from the sulfites that live even in this special edition wine.
“Whether he’s fighting off a herd of walkers or rallying communities to defend against the Saviors, Rick Grimes is undoubtedly the leader of the group, just as this Petite Sirah would command the attention of anyone who tastes it. Like Rick, this red is a true crowd pleaser — bold, dark and balanced, exhibiting a notable tension between the bright acidity and firm, tannic structure. You’ll realize with just one sip that this is a wine that’ll never let you down.” – Lot18
This pure and approachable wine features black-blue fruit both in the aromatics and on the palate, along with light black pepper and smoky bacon notes.
Resourceful, fearless and capable of handling both the dead and the living, Daryl Dixon is a loner and man of few words, but his loyalty to the group is immediately apparent to anyone he encounters. This California Cabernet Sauvignon is similarly reliable, showing depth and an attractive core of ripe black fruits, intermingled with savory nuances of coffee bean and dried herbs. Like Daryl’s crossbow, this is a wine you can count on to always hit the mark.” – Lot18
Ripe, yet restrained, this Cab shows flavors of cherry, currant and plum, alongside savory notes of smoke, graphite and a touch of dried herbs.
Tastes like: Black Cherry, Black Currant, Graphite, Herbs, Plum, Smoke, Tobacco
Pairs with: Beef, Braised Meats, Grilled Red Meats
“Negan is the man we all love to hate, but you have to respect his uncompromising style. This red blend is also brawny and bold, creating devotees with its robust, extracted flavors of vanilla, dark chocolate and caramel. A portion of the wine was aged for three months in barrels. Composed of 73% Merlot, 18% Zinfandel and 9% Petite Sirah, this is a wine that packs a punch harder than Lucille’s, compelling you through the apocalypse and beyond.” – Lot18
