HobNob Wicked Red Blend, 2012

HobNob Wicked Red Blend, 2012

HobNob Vineyards releases new wicked red wine blend with limited edition bottle to celebrate

Though the ilovedust designed bottle will disappear after Halloween, the Wicked Red Blend won't.

How devilishly clever of the folks at HobNob to proffer the perfect easy-drinking red just in time for Halloween: the limited edition bottles were done by award winning England-based design studio, ilovedust, who embellished with an appropriately spooky sugar skull, sure to please the adult ghosties and ghoulies on your All Hallow’s Eve party list.

The wine is a smooth blend of grenache (40 percent), cabernet sauvignon (35 percent), shiraz (15 percent) and pinot noir (10 percent), and clocks in with 13.5 percent alcohol. The nose tickles with stone fruit, spice, and cacao, with just enough peppery kick to remind you that this is no simpering, innocent red. Round and light- to medium-bodied on the palate, with a bright smooth acidity and a hint of orange zest in the finish, it is also priced well enough to make filling your party cauldron (or handing out individual bottles as party favors) easy on the pocketbook as well. Though the limited edition bottle will disappear after Halloween the wine won't; after the skull is gone it will be sold as the Wicked Red Blend. All treat, no trick, Happy Halloween!

Trick or treat? Why not both! Make your October Boo(k) Club scary good with spine-tingling stories, wicked wines and spooky snacks like these.

Trick or treat? Why not both! Make your October Boo(k) Club scary good with spine-tingling stories, wicked wines and spooky snacks like these.

On the &ldquoboos&rdquo front, it&rsquos easy to stay on theme with blood red wine like HobNob Wicked Red Blend, Bogle Phantom, Apothic Red or The Seven Deadly Zins. You can also pick up a bottle of Heretic Shallow Grave beer or, for a non-alcoholic option, Dead World Premium Orange Zombie Soda.

Flesh out your snack spread with sweet Halloween candy like sour gummy worms, candy corn or Moonstruck Chocolate Halloween Truffles, and savory snacks like Boo Chips and Freaky Fromage. Then throw in some diabolical décor like pumpkins, skeleton props and dry ice (be careful!) to create an extra eerie ambience.

Even if you&rsquore not a fan of the typical Horror genre, there are plenty of ghostly stories that run the gamut from slightly unsettling to downright terrifying. Turn the page on creepy classics like Dracula by Bram Stoker or Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, or a spooky spin on a classic like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith. This is also the perfect chance to read almost anything by Stephen King, Dean Koontz or R.L. Stine, or a nonfiction title like Stiff by Mary Roach.

For more bone-chilling books, visit your local bookstore or library. For more inspiration for frightfully good snacks, drinks and décor, visit your local Nugget Markets!
