The Collection

After much demand from fans, Klingon Bloodwine is the latest release in the Star Trek Collection of wines! Possibly the most celebrated alcoholic beverage of the Star Trek franchise, Klingon Bloodwine has found its way to Earth.

Klingon Bloodwine

Klingon Bloodwine is a wine traditionally consumed in celebration and victory. Whether drunk while reveling in triumph or simply enjoying life among friends, this could be the finest vintage of Klingon Bloodwine until 2309. Traditionally twice as strong as whiskey and best served warm, this sanguine version of Bloodwine is more human-friendly at 13% ABV and can be served slightly chilled or at cellar temperature (60-65 F.)

The Labels

Star Trek fans everywhere will recognize the label of Klingon Bloodwine, a symbol comprised of the bat’leth or “sword of honor,” a traditional Klingon weapon. The back label includes the victorious Klingon phrase: “Celebrate! Tomorrow we may die!” (yIlop! wa’IeS chaq maHegh!). Also, “Bloodwine” appears across the middle of the back label in the original Klingon language (not transposed into the Latin alphabet).

The Wine

The 2012 Klingon Bloodwine is a medium-bodied red blend of Malbec, Syrah and Petit Verdot from the Paso Robles AVA in California. Klingon Bloodwine can be enjoyed with grilled meats and mature cheeses, or traditional Klingon fare such as Heart of Targ.

Tasting Notes from the Winemaker

Rich, rustic, fruit focused and complex. Concentrated raspberry and cherry aromas. Notes of spicy vanilla oak round out the nose. On the palate, the wine is savory and rich, with dark berry flavors and ripe plum. Velvety tannins and well balanced acidity lead to a smooth, lingering finish.

To purchase Klingon Bloodwine and a variety of other Star Trek-themed wines, visit Vinport.

    I don’t want to be around when Klingons drink this “bloodwine.” It hasn’t any blood in it, and you know how testy they get when they’re disappointed. BTW, it’s spelled Qapla’.
