Whether you’re home after a long night of hustling around little goblins or hosting a boo-bash, here are five vegan wine suggestions to meet your Halloween sipping needs.5 Vegan Halloween winesLunatic White or Red Wine Blend ($25)
The name says it all, Lunatic is the perfect wine to serve your Halloween party guests. If you prefer a red, the 2010 Lunatic Red Blend has great density, richness, and complexity. You will taste the blackberry and cassis of barrel aged Syrah, bright raspberry and pomegranate fruit of Sangiovese and Grenache and the peppery spice and firm grip of Petite Sirah’s tannins. If white is more your treat, the Lunatic White Blend is intensely aromatic, densely flavored, muscular but supple, graceful and delicate. This wine is full of contradictions and charming mysteries. It is an alliance of the aromatic Symphony, Arneis, Albarino and Viognier on a foundation of richly flavored Chardonnay. Jasmine, apricot, ripe pear and fresh white peach meld in a succulent compote. YUM!Lost Canyon SaraLee's Vineyard Pinot Noir ($45)
Dressed in costume, you've earned a top quality wine. Lost Cayon's Pinot Noir is dense in color, bursting with aromas of black cherries, plum, wet gravel and subtle cedar notes. Flavors of fresh black cherries, sweet plum and baking spices are engulfed by rich, firm tannins and bright, balanced acidity. This is a wine you'll love sipping and savoring.Sip Moscato ($15)
Why should the kids get all the Halloween treats? Grown-ups deserve something sweet, too! Sip Moscato will tantalize your tongue with vibrant floral notes and fill your nose with aromas of peach and orange blossoms. Flavors of citrus, peaches, and tropical fruits dominate without losing their delicateness. A soft and luscious mouthfeel with a hint of effervescence for a beautiful liveliness and a balance to the sweetness. This is our choice to indulge our Halloween need for sweet.Benziger Family Cabernet Sauvignon ($20)
For those of you who hand out boxes of raisins to little trick-or-treaters, you need a certified sustainable wine to celebrate the night. The 2008 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon has weight, structure and well-integrated tannins. Dark berry flavors introduce the wine followed by hints of tea, cocoa and coffee. A well supported mid palate gives way to a long, soft finish. Pour yourself a glass of this wine once the kids and part guests have all gone home and you need a relaxing end to the Halloween holiday.More vegan Halloween tips and recipes!
