Halloween Wine — Prayers of Sinners Red Blend

Hi wine friends…and Happy #WineWednesday!  Today, I’m sharing the 2017 Prayers of Sinners, which is a $13 red wine blend from Washington State. The wine has a “companion” white, the Prayers of Saints Chardonnay, and both bottles have labels with glow-in-the-dark skeletons.  Perfect for Halloween…cheers!

Next up is a collaboration with VINCE.WINE: Your Source for WINE Edutainment.  On Saturday, we’ll taste the 2018 Rombauer Vineyards Zinfandel, which is $37, on his channel.  Then, next Wednesday, we’ll taste the Rombauer Vineyards Chardonnay, which is $39, here on A Glass After Work.

You can find Simply Charmed Magnetic Wine Charms here.  It looks like the set my skull is from is no longer for sale, but there are plenty of other Halloween sets.

Questions of the Day:

  • What are your plans for Halloween?
  • Have you ever had the Prayers of Sinners or the Prayers of Saints wines?

A Fall White Wine — The Oro de Castilla Verdejo

Hi wine friends…and Happy #WineWednesday!  Today, I’m sharing the 2018 Oro de Castilla Verdejo by Bodegas Hermanos del Villar.  It’s a medium-bodied white wine from Rueda, Spain and costs $21. This wine came in my DCanter monthly wine club shipment. Cheers!

 I also recommend checking out DCanter’s Instagram, as well as Matt “The Wine Store Guy’s” Instagram.

Finally, it was suggest that I  share the wines I’ll be tasting a week ahead of time.  Admittedly, that’s not always easy, as became clear this week when next week’s wine changed between my recording this video and my sharing it today, but next week’s wines will 3 Sherrys I received as samples — González Byass Alfonso Oloroso, Harveys Bristol Cream Solera Sherry, and one of my all-time favorites, the González Byass Nectar PX — and some Halloween candy pairing.

Question of the Day: Are you a Verdejo fan?  If so, do you have any winery favorites?

A Good Canned Wine?

Hi wine friends…and Happy #WineWednesday!  Today, I’m sharing the Two Shepherds Bucking Luna Sparkling Cinsault, which is a canned sparkling wine from California.  One can is 375ml, or half a regular wine bottle, and costs $11.  Cheers!

Question of the Day: Have you had a sparkling red wine before?  What are your thoughts on them?
