It seems like it’s been years since Rick walked (well, fell really) out of that hospital bed and into our lives. Since then, we’ve endured numerous traumas and deaths we still can’t speak of. However, it seems as though the Walking Dead producers do feel our pain as they’ve kindly come out with themed wines to numb us to the bloody deaths yet to occur.
Pour yourself a glass of Rick, Daryl, or Negan depending on your mood, as you binge-watch the zombie apocalypse on Netflix, because, let’s be honest, wine helps.

Here Are The Descriptions
- 2016 Daryl Dixon Cabernet Sauvignon ($22): “Resourceful, fearless and capable of handling both the dead and the living, Daryl Dixon is a loner and man of few words, but his loyalty to the group is immediately apparent to anyone he encounters. This California Cabernet Sauvignon is similarly reliable, showing depth and an attractive core of ripe black fruits, intermingled with savory nuances of coffee bean and dried herbs.”
- 2016 Rick Grimes California Petite Sirah ($22): “Whether he’s fighting off a herd of walkers or rallying communities to defend against the Saviors, Rick Grimes is undoubtedly the leader of the group, just as this Petite Sirah would command the attention of anyone who tastes it. Like Rick, this red is a true crowd pleaser — bold, dark and balanced, exhibiting a notable tension between the bright acidity and firm, tannic structure.”
- 2016 Negan California Bourbon Barrel Red Blend ($22): “Negan is the man we all love to hate, but you have to respect his uncompromising style. This red blend is also brawny and bold, creating devotees with its robust, extracted flavors of vanilla, dark chocolate, and caramel. A portion of the wine was aged for three months in barrels. Composed of 73 percent Merlot, 18 percent Zinfandel and 9 percent Petite Sirah, this is a wine that packs a punch harder than Lucille’s, compelling you through the apocalypse and beyond.”
Unlike his character, the Negan actually sounds pretty good. Let us know which wine you’d fancy!
