"Walking Dead" fans who also like to enjoy a libation while watching the zombie apocalypse unfold are in luck: Three new wine varieties tying into the show are now available for purchase, with each one toasting a different badass female character.
People reports that cable outlet AMC is partnering with the wine retailers at Lot18 to offer three new bottles that should please both avid "TWD" fans and avid wine connoisseurs alike. And the best part is that they're all dedicated to the show's trio of powerful women: Michonne (Danai Gurira), Carol (Melissa McBride), and Maggie (Lauren Cohan).
For Michonne, there's a 2016 Spanish Tempranillo with notes of cherry, plum, and red fruit that "will slice to your core with its focused acidity." In honor of Carol, a 2017 Monterey County Syrah Rosé offers notes of melon, orange, and strawberry, and offers "a notable complexity and quiet inner strength." (Who knew wine could be so noble?)
And finally, the Maggie varietal rounds out the pack: the 2016 California Petit Sirah-Zinfandel Blend offers an eclectic mix of flavors (including bacon, black fruit, blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, and bramble), and is touted as "a crowd-pleasing red that's easy to love." Sounds about right.
Lot18 previously rolled out a "TWD"-themed collection tied to Rick, Daryl, and Negan, and all those varieties plus the new trio are available for purchase through the retailer here. Happy watching and drinking (responsibly, of course), everyone!
