I sometimes drink...wine

On Saturday, my mate Paul popped over with surprise souvenir from his recent California–Las Vegas sojourn: a bottle of Vampire North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 (left).

I recognised the logo straight away: Vampire.com. I thought it was only available from their website, which is why I was surprised he told me he'd scored it for 'about 10 bucks' at Cost Plus World Market, California Plaza, Los Angeles. I guess that shows my naivety on vampire-themed wine distribution.

Vampire.com has their own own wine line—Vampire Vineyards. This particular brew 'is sourced from several small-berry clones of this traditional Bordeaux varietal, grown in the North Coast.' Apparently, it also goes well with 'grilled steaks and chops, or with rich red pasta dishes'. Nice.

I think I'll save it for Halloween.

Edit 21/10/11: It was from Cost Plus World Market, Santa Ana, not L.A.Whoops! Cheers, Paul.

Let us know how it tastes. I'm very curious.

Shall do, and I'll try to be more descriptive than 'good' or 'crap'.
