Last year, Lot18 partnered with AMC for a line of three “The Walking Dead”-themed bottles of wine, each one inspired by a beloved character from the series. The two are once again teaming up, we’ve learned today, to produce a limited-edition collection of wine based on the badass women featured on the mega popular television series!
“For the new bottles, Lot18 teamed up with legendary artist Brian Rood, whose work can be seen within global franchises like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Marvel and AMC’s “The Walking Dead”, to design the new labels. The individually selected wines were carefully crafted by the team at Lot18 to highlight the strong female leads from the show – Carol, Michonne and Maggie.”
Carol – 2017 Monterey County Syrah Rose
“Maternal and protective, Carol may come off as soft, almost delicate, at first, but like this Monterey County rosé, she turns out to be anything but once unleashed. The bright strawberry and watermelon flavors of this intriguing wine surge forth on the palate, along with a complexity and quiet inner strength that few rosés possess. When it comes to quenching your thirst and sense of adventure, this is a wine that gets the job done – but on its own terms.”
Michonne – 2016 Spanish Tempranillo
“Vibrant and gutsy, yet controlled, this Spanish Tempranillo is as badass as the katana-wielding Michonne. And like her weapon of choice, it will slice you to your very core with its focused acidity and pure, concentrated flavors of cherry and plum. Despite the driven, dominating fruit shown on the palate, however, the finish is warm, charming and pleasant, easily inviting you back for another sip. Trust your gut and take it – you’ll be forever loyal.”
Maggie – 2016 California Petite Sirah-Zinfandel
“As a farmer’s daughter, Maggie would have appreciated the care and dedication that went into growing the grapes for this expressive red blend of 60% Petite Sirah and 40% Zinfandel. Featuring bold blackberry and blueberry flavors and medium-firm tannins on the finish, this wine is a true crowd-pleaser – robust, dependable and easy to love, much like Maggie herself. Raise a glass of this memorable red to the idea of finding true love, even amid a zombie apocalypse.”
