Drinks: Lot18 & AMC Launch Sales for New Female-Inspired "The Walking Dead" Wine Collection
Winemaker Lot18 has once again teamed up with AMC to produce a limited-edition collection of wine based on the badass women featured on the mega-popular "The Walking Dead" series, which is coming up on its ninth season. These bottles make great gifts for fans of the worldwide hit show, as well as anyone who enjoys a quality bottle of wine. Each bottle will include a specially designed label, making it the perfect beverage anytime.
These collectible bottles can be ordered exclusively at Lot18.com/TheWalkingDead while supplies last. 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.
"The Walking Dead" female-inspired wine collection will include the following:
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.
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.
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.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, "The Walking Dead" reigns as television's most watched drama for adults 18-49. "The Walking Dead" tells the story of the months and years that follow a zombie apocalypse and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The series is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse. "The Walking Dead" will air its ninth season on AMC in late 2018.
