For this week’s Cinemavino, we take a long look back at 2002’s Blade II, an early entry in the modern superhero renaissance. Believe or not, this episode grows more timely by the minute: Marvel is currently working on a reboot of the character, starring two-time Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali. This new film will be part of the MCU’s Phase Five, and is scheduled for release in two years. (Take that with a grain of salt. COVID has made release schedules a little wonky.)
To pair with this film, we drink a great red blend called Horseshoes and Handgrenades. Sourced from Oregon and Washington, this wine features Cabernet, Merlot, and Syrah. It’s bold, earthy, with just a hint of peppery notes on the finish. Put this wine with a Filet Mignon, or with your favorite Wesley Snipes movie! To learn more, click here.
As always, our podcast might contain a few spoilers, so proceed with caution. The Blade films can be found on HBOMax for streaming. Kick back, drink up, and enjoy another fine installment of Cinemavino!
