These are blended beauties that reek of mystery, and outstanding layers of flavor. We picked a trio of blood-red wine with spooky labels to accompany your Halloween or Day of the Dead party.

See the rest of Hobnob’s party plan for hosting a spectacular Halloween party with a menu of foods in orange and black and sophisticated tastes. Pair these wines with the small bites:

[1] Bacio Divino Cellars 2012 Napa Valley Artful Red Wine We added a shot of this intense Cabernet Sauvignon to our signature cocktail for its robust notes, and deep red color. And the black simple label will look great on the bar. Tasting Notes: rich, black fruit flavors, silky tannins and exceptionally long, elegant finish. $80.

[2] Jeff Cohn Cellars 2012 The Imposter From the vineyard known for its unusual aging containers, comes this fruit-forward blend. This one is mixed: 54% Zinfandel, 19% Syrah, 13% Petite Sirah, 6% Alicante Bouschet, 4% Grenache, 3% Carignane, 1% Viognier. Whew. This wine sat for 11 months in a large format concrete tank, and a Foudre (thick-walled barrel), and 300-600 liter oak barrels. The shadow on the label adds a twinge of mystery. Tasting Notes: Plum and cherry, and blackberry liqueur. $35. jeffcohncellars

[3] 2013 Ravenswood Besieged Red Blend Sonoma County
Dark and ominous artwork decorate the label of Besieged, the first wine in Ravenswood’s new Storyteller Series. This artwork is a nod to Ravenswood’s very first harvest, recalling a circling flock of ravens that taunted winemaker Joel Peterson. A unique blend of Petite Sirah, Carignane and Zinfandel grapes with notes of blackberry, black cherry, and plum spiced with cardamom. Peppery. $22.
