8 Dark Red Wines Perfect for Your Halloween Party

Halloween is just around the corner, and it's the perfect time to get together with friends and enjoy delicious dark red wines. If you're planning on throwing a Halloween party or you're attending one, you may want to gather a few bottles of red wine to enjoy with your friends and loved ones. Our team at Theorem Vineyards has put together a list of 8 dark red wines that are perfect for your Halloween party.

2015 Constant Estate Claret

The 2015 Constant Estate Claret is a proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot from our estate vineyards. The wine is dark and lavish wine with slight floral notes, hints of raspberry, leather, and maraschino cherry. The palate has fine, structured tannins and culminates in a long, elegant, and silky finish.

2015 Fantesca All Great Things "Freedom" Red Blend

The 2015 All Great Things "Freedom" is the perfect red wine for a Halloween party. This is a dark garnet color with a very complex layered nose. It has aromas of fine leather, vanilla, berry compote, and black cherries. This wine is silky and plush across the palate. The flavors are dynamic, dense, yet it has a softness that makes it approachable and delicious.

Theorem Vineyard's Hawk's Prey Cabernet Sauvignon

Hawk’s Prey is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with spectacular tasting notes. It has an opaque purple core out to a ruby red rim. On the nose, there are elegant, complex aromas of ripe plums, milk chocolate, wild blackberries, cassis, violets, and warm, freshly tilled earth. On the pallet, the wine is soft and lush with a dense core of flavors that mirror the nose. The tannins are smooth and silky; while adding structure, they are seamlessly integrated.

2016 Hidden Terrace Vinyard, Syrah

The 2016 Hidden Terrace Vineyard was produced on a steep south-facing slope at the edge of our Mountain Estate, high above the Sonoma Valley floor. This Syrah has intense concentration and is a whole-berry fermented in small, open-top fermenters. It was aged 21 months in French Oak barrels.

Theorem Vineyard's Voir Dire Cabernet Sauvignon

Theorem Vineyard's Voir Dire is our inaugural wine that is complex, captivating, and timeless. It was produced from Theorem's oldest vines, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Built to age, Voir Dire is a stunning reflection of soil and microclimate, full-bodied and supremely balanced with highly extracted black fruit flavors.

2013 Jericho Chimera Proprietary Blend

The 2013 Chimera is a pure spectacle of depth and concentration. This is a Cabernet-based proprietary blend of four Bordeaux varietals that has rich character and complexity. It has deep aromas of blackcurrant, Angeleno plumb, and hints of anise that give way to more site-specific and almost gentle remembrances of crushed stone and white flowers.

Caldwell Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot is known as one of the darkest red wines. The Caldwell Petit Verdot has density, palate weight, and tannins you can chew. It has a great structure rounded in all directions by blackberry, blueberry, plum, and black tea tannins that meld into a dark cherry finish, making the whole experience refreshing for such a dark red wine.

Theorem Vineyard's Diamond Mountain Merlot

The 2017 Theorem Merlot is a heady mix of ripe black cherries, fresh plums, milk chocolate, and roasted espresso. From the moment the wine touches your lips, it shows power, structure, and personality. As the wine glides over the mid-palate, it reveals a silky elegance wrapped in mountain tannins. The finish is long and protracted with lingering notes of ripe plums and roasted espresso. This red wine is a medium-bodied wine that is lighter and more approachable than others listed.
