October Wine Friday: The Scariest and Funniest Wine LABEL

IMG_6299
This month we tasted wines based purely on the wine
label and wow how much fun was that?!  The Zombie Zin was definitely
the prize winner from the label perspective — look at that label.  But
I thought the best tasting wine went to the Director’s Cut Pinot Noir,
and the label was interesting as well.  We hope everyone enjoyed the
seasonal food theme too.  See you again next month!
