There’s nothing that sets the mood for your Halloween party like the perfect, spooky-looking beverage! The Divining Rod by Marc Mondavi fits the bill. Not only are the bottles eerily beautiful, but it has a flavor to match!
Today I’m going to share with you three big, bold wines from The Divining Rod, and a great DIY pumpkin cooler to serve them in at your party!
âFrom water, comes wineâ â never has this been more true than with The Divining Rod wines. By giving life to countless vineyards across California, Marc Mondavi quite literally âturns water into wine.â He possesses the grape growing, winemaking skills and knowledge that come from growing up in the Napa Valley, as a key member of Americaâs foremost wine family. But Marcâs âsixth senseâ for water divining (also called water witching or dowsing) and connection with the land, put him on another level of winemaking. Thatâs why we say that his Divining Rod wines are more than natural, theyâre supernatural.
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2012 vintage was a near-perfect vintage that delivered concentrated ripeness and depth to ourÂ fruit from the Alexander Valley. A bouquet of cranberries, anise, juicy plum and earthy cedarwoodÂ aromas are layered with subtle notes of leather and graphite. LightÂ flavors of Bakerâs chocolateÂ and cola complement the ripe blackberry and deep cherryÂ flavors. A rich mouthfeel, texture andÂ weight from medium-toasted French oak enhance our Cabernet thatÂ finishes with layers ofÂ complexity.
