Cabernet

This is my Gothic Arches entry for the theme "Autumn". I love Autumn, and where I live in the wine country in California- nothing says it more beautifully than the grapevines in their full glory. The colors are fantastic just as the "crush" begins to happen in late September . I made this Gothic Arch with some of the colors and elements that symbolize this time. I wanted it to have the look of a wine bottle label which I love to collect!

    I am a sucker for wine labels too, wish they didn't use super glue to put them on the bottles now!
