What's Wrong with Wine Today:
2008 Chateau Lavergne Bordeaux 187ml (3.99 retail)
Pairs with: A hospital visit after you are savagely beaten and maimed.
Hooray! Disgusting Bordeaux in a mini plastic beer glass (perfect for on-the-go) has arrived! I don’t know, there’s something about the sight of someone enjoying one of these that would make me want to push them down a flight of stairs.
I can’t think of any reason, especially with so many great wines available in a screw-cap, anyone would ever fall for this marketing strategy.
1. Have no self-respect.
2. Work for a large distributor and have been forced to sell your soul to “move units”
3. Think it’s really cute (god I hate you)
4. Like wine that tastes like wet cardboard.
5. Enjoy cracking into your wine in the same manner as you would a snack-pack of Mott's Apple Sauce.
5. Also enjoy this product:
Pairs with: The worst day of your life.
“The taste of Dutch chocolate and fine red wine” gives way to a delightful mélange of an inebriated homeless person who pounded a YooHoo chocolate drink and then threw up.
Don’t be fooled by the tranquil windmill scene on the label, it’s going to be a rugged journey. This wine conjures up images of reindeer sweater-wearing shitheads drinking out of reindeer mugs, urging each other to “just try it – you can’t even taste the booze!”
My pal Drew said he would rather shotgun a 24oz. Budweiser Chelada.
No. Just Say No.
