Robert Biale Vineyards off the list. The only trouble is now that I’ve been there and witnessed first-hand how awesome they are, and how delicious the wine is, I’m going to need to go back, soon.
Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) Robert Biale Vineyards has been a going concern for about 25 years now. But when you visit (and you should) you’re going to feel like they’ve been there longer. Tasting is by appointment and when you get there someone from the winery will be with you throughout the process. They’ll bring you wines, talk about them and the winery, as well as answer any and all questions. This can be done outside on their covered porch or inside.
Cabernet Shiraz India They make a host of different wines, but first and foremost they’re a zinfandel house. Specifically, their focus is on site specific zinfandels that tell the story of particular vineyards in given vintage years. If you’re someone who loves great zinfandels made in a classic (not blustery) style, put the wines of Robert Biale on your short list. I had the pleasure of tasting the wines with Bob and he couldn’t have been more accommodating, humble, and charming. He loves what he does and it shows. My friends and I had the opportunity to learn about his Estate Vineyards which go back many years in the family’s history. One is named for his Grandfather Aldo the other is named after his Grandfather’s secret name for zinfandel, Black Chicken. In addition to their estate vineyards they source fruit at other sites in both Napa and Sonoma.

Wine labels with a devilish side are perfect for uncorking on Halloween. Seems most scary creatures prefer a deeply hued, intense wine -- and so do we. Here is our list of the five best wines for grown-up trick-or-treat, complete with dark and creepy wine labels.
Sauvignon Blanc Dracula: Your inner Vlad doesn't have to wait until midnight to uncork Vampire Vineyards' Dracula wines. The winery suggests you "sip the blood of the vine" -- syrah, merlot or pinot noir. We think Count Dracula's pick would be the inky, bloodlike 2009 Dracula Syrah ($28), with black cherry and chocolate notes.
Chenin Blanc Curious Beasts: A spooky potion from Sonoma's Truett Hurst, the 2013 Curious Beasts Blood Red Wine ($18) comes wrapped in a bag sporting skeletal creatures straight from Dante's "Inferno." Open the bottle to find "blood" dripping down the cork. This opaque, inky blend of seven red grape varieties mimics, well, blood. But the juicy, spicy wine is smooth as velvet. Prefer a ghostlier hue? Try the wickedly good 2013 Curious Beasts Chardonnay ($15), full of creamy apple and pear flavors.
