Cool Horror Gear: The Walking Dead wine collection

AMC has teamed with Lot18 to create The Walking Dead Wine Collection, a limited edition trio of hand-crafted blends designed to honor the essence of three characters from the popular television series. These are wines, they note, that are perfect for your weekly Walking Dead viewing parties... or for any occasion.

I'm not a wine drinker - far from living the SIDEWAYS lifestyle, I've actually only ever had one small drink of wine. But I'm intrigued by these Walking Dead wines because it is said that Lot18 carefully crafted each of the three wines to highlight their shared characteristics with the Walking Dead character they share their name with.

How can a wine share characteristics with a person? Let Lot18 explain: 

Rick Grimes - 2016 California Petite Sirah
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 his is a wine that'll never let you down.

Daryl Dixon - 2016 California Cabernet Sauvignon
Resourceful, fearless and capable of handling both the dead and the living, Daryl Dixon is a loner 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.

Negan - California Bourbon Barrel Red Blend
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 bourbon barrel aged for three months. Composed of 73% Merlots, 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.

These wines can be purchased exclusively through Lot18.com, and if you'd like to grab a bottle of one... or all three... or a half or full case of all three... you should head over to the site as soon as possible, before these limited editions sell out for good.
