This is a Pinot Noir, cultivated and crafted with the same passion and intensity that Mike Mignola has brought to the creation of Hellboy for over two decades. The perfect wine to pair with the next issue of the iconic Hellboy. This special bottling is the first in the Hellboy series. The the 2011 Hellboy Reserve Pinot Noir is a limited edition and will only be available domestically in the United States. The Hellboy Pinot Noir is available for pre-order now.
