Novelty Wine

The most recent wine I've consumed was Vampire Pinot Noir. I didn't buy this expecting greatness. My gothy nature got the best of me and I picked it up simply for the novelty of it.

First of all, I enjoy an occasional pinot noir, but it's by no means my favorite varietal. Second, well...Transylvania isn't exactly known for fine wine production. That said, it was "okay". It was a very thin wine (even for a pinot). But it wasn't bad either. By looking at their website, it's obvious that it's all a novelty operation. Especially when they even offer energy drinks!

It's a fun bottle to have on a shelf and maybe drink during Halloween, but don't serve it when you're trying to impress.
