Slayer has jumped on the booze bandwagon with their own exclusive to Sweden wine, “Reign In Blood”. Appropriately named for the bands 1986 record, the response to the very metal vino has been huge.
The wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon from California, is as uncompromising and tough as the band. After a couple of Seasons in the Abyss, the wine has an undisputed attitude and a soft nose of dark berry fruits with oak and spicy nuances. Good mouth feel with hints of fresh fruit and juicy, smooth tannins. Well structured and rounded with subtle notes of oak, showing true Divine Intervention. Enjoy it while headbanging, riffing or with food, friends and great music. Reign in Wine!
The only bit of “boo” I can possible cast on this completely metal news is that Sweden isn’t driving distance from Seattle as far as I know.
