Australia- under $15 /Wine Spectator 89! Available at WickedWines.com Trueblood Napa Valley Syrah: The inky black and blue color of the 2004 Trueblood Napa Valley Syrah is an indication of its power. This wine will bruise your soul with its palate crushing cherry, plum smoke and spice. Rich toasty oak and silky smooth tannins soften the blow enough for you take another sip.
Chateau Du Vampire Bordeaux Style Cabernet Blend (Vampire vineyards – Paso Robles, California): This is our first release of the Château du Vampire, and it is our favorite cabernet based Vampire Wine we have ever made. We made it by blending cabernet sauvignon (60%) with cabernet franc (30%), and then we added 10% malbec to finish it off. The result is a rich and well balanced wine, full bodied with aromas of black cherries, spices and chocolate. This is a complex wine that is focused, and yet displays brilliant fruit and soft tannins that lead to a lingering finish.
Vampire Cabernet Sauvignon (Vampire vineyards – Paso Robles, California): Vampire Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from several small-berry clones of this traditional Bordeaux varietal, grown in the Paso Robles region of California’s Central Coast.
