On the off chance that you’ve at any point thought Rick Grimes was maturing like a fine wine, you merit a decoration, or a gem ball, or something. Since now, Rick Grimes really is a fine wine.
EW can uncover that AMC has collaborated with Lot18 for The Walking Dead Wine Collection, which highlights three distinct mixes named after fan-most loved characters Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon, and Negan. What’s more, they’re all reds, since, well, this is The Walking Dead, so they sort of must be.
The three varietals all go on special Monday, Nov. 6, at 8 a.m. ET at Lot18.com/TheWalkingDead, and will be accessible while the constrained supply keeps going. Before you go and set your wake up timers, here are the points of interest on each of the three gentlemen’s wines, including select itemized pictures of their names.
The Rick Grimes is a 2016 California Petite Sirah described as “a true crowd pleaser” like Rick himself. It’s “bold, dark and balanced, exhibiting a notable tension between the bright acidity and firm, tannic structure. You’ll realize with just one sip that his is a wine that’ll never let you down.”
Daryl deserves something deep, reliable, and kinda smokin’… so he’s a 2016 California Cabernet Sauvignon that’s “similarly reliable, showing depth and an attractive core of ripe black fruits, intermingled with savory nuances of coffee bean and dried herbs. Like Daryl’s crossbow, this is a wine you can count on to always hit the mark.”
On the show, Negan is someone to be feared. But as a 2016 Bourbon Barrel Red Blend, he’s just yummy. “This red blend is also brawny and bold, creating devotees with its robust, extracted flavors of vanilla, dark chocolate, and caramel,” the winemaker says. “A portion of the wine was bourbon barrel aged for three months. Composed of 73 percent Merlots, 18 percent Zinfandel and 9 percent Petite Sirah, this is a wine that packs a punch harder than Lucille’s, compelling you through the apocalypse and beyond.”1 of 1
