The Bogle Phantom Red is a California-sourced wine made from a melange of grapes. Aptly named, the wine is, “…characterized by its incandescence.” It’s taste is reportedly, “deeply luscious and succulent,” reminiscent of blackberries anise, sweet fig, and black pepper.

Total Wine

Complete with a pitchfork on its label, The Velvet Devil is the perfect option for a particularly witchy party. It is said to be, “Balanced, rich and explosive. Think red plums and bittersweet cocoa with hints of smoke and cedar. So smooth, so naughty, and so very, very nice.”

Bogle Phantom Chardonnay

$14.97

Total Wine

The Bogle Phantom Chardonnay is the newer, white counterpart to the Bogle Phantom Red.The wine is hand-stirred twice a month and barrel-fermented in French oak before bottling. Per its website description, the wine “…entices with its rich layers. Green apple and pear transform into spicy flavors of freshly baked apple pie, while barrel fermentation imparts a creamy, luscious mouthfeel. French oak whispers sweet notes of vanilla and melted caramel.”

Dracula Merlot

Pumpkin Wine

$12.95

Three Lakes Winery

This wine is definitely more treat than trick, but not all of us are cut out for a full night of spooks. And it turns out, this particular flavor never goes out of style — the “smooth, semi-sweet wine” is so popular that Three Lakes Winery sells it all year long.

Fangría Sangria

Fangria Sangria

$12.95

Vampire Vineyards

Fangria Sangria is perhaps the fanciest offering of Vamipire Vineyards. It is a “…bold, grown-up sangria that anyone can enjoy. It begins with beautiful blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes, grown in the province of Toledo in Central Spain.” Who says sangria is just for summertime soirees? Oh, also it is 10% ABV.
