May the Fourth Be With You: Of Klingons, Wine & Paso Robles

Star Wars may the daddy of all sci-fi films, but TV’s Star Trek is the granddaddy of anyplace where anyone wishes to boldly go. It’s one thing to create a whole other world, rather universe, of unique characters and places, and it’s another to actually have a wine here on planet earth inspired by such far off distant galaxies. The Klingon Bloodwine (literally “tlhlngan ‘Iw Hlq”) has been transported to earth for us mere mortals. A blend of Malbec, Syrah and Petit Verdot without a hint of blood, this is a mild wine, fun like Spock (OK, well, maybe not fun exactly) but not as nerdy and implacable as many Klingons. Bright red fruit like plum, black cherry and boysenberry with a boost of acidity and a touch of oak treatment makes this the perfect wine for May 4th, or any such celebratory millennia ocasion. Grab your light saber, cuddle with your Tribble, sit next to your favorite AI, and enjoy the bounty of the universe.

ORIGIN: Paso Robles, California  (so we’re told)
PRICE: $19.99 / 750/ml                 (uncertain how many darsek that equals)
ALCOHOL: 13%                           (booze is booze in any galaxy)
