Slayer Introduces 'Reign In Blood' Wine

There must be demand for death metal-branded wine, because Slayer is releasing its first wine, called Reign In Blood [Red], named after the band's 1986 album.

The Cabernet Sauvignon is only available in Sweden for now and retails for a whopping $105.

Here's how the wine is described, according to the importer's website:

The wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon from California, is as uncomprimising [sic] 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. Best company for the wine comes as no surprise, enjoy it while headbanging, riffing or with food, friends and great music. Reign in Wine!

Slayer might not be the first band to get into the wine game (see our slideshow below), but we can't think of too many other wines to serve while headbanging. Thank goodness that niche is now filled.
