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.
