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!
“From water, comes wine” – never has this been more true than with The Divining Rod wines. By giving life to countless vineyards across California, Marc Mondavi quite literally “turns water into wine.” He possesses the grape growing, winemaking skills and knowledge that come from growing up in the Napa Valley, as a key member of America’s foremost wine family. But Marc’s “sixth sense” for water divining (also called water witching or dowsing) and connection with the land, put him on another level of winemaking. That’s why we say that his Divining Rod wines are more than natural, they’re supernatural.
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2012 vintage was a near-perfect vintage that delivered concentrated ripeness and depth to our fruit from the Alexander Valley. A bouquet of cranberries, anise, juicy plum and earthy cedarwood aromas are layered with subtle notes of leather and graphite. Light flavors of Baker’s chocolate and cola complement the ripe blackberry and deep cherry flavors. A rich mouthfeel, texture and weight from medium-toasted French oak enhance our Cabernet that finishes with layers of complexity.
