So my friend asks me if I can recommend an earthy pinot for ~$20…(rimshot!)….$20/glass maybe…(rimshot!)…

…thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen, you’ve been a great crowd; if you want to see more of my act, I’ll be here every Wednesday night this week…but seriously folks…I too like a wine to convey a sense of place, and I prefer that place not to be the inside of a jam jar, but $20?

Here, drink this.  I think there was some dirt in it, but the flavor was mainly dominatedIMG_20131229_184557605 by THE BLOOD OF ANGELS…

Dead Wine

January 10, 2012

Really?  Well, we already know the bouquet would be a sickening melange of cannabis, patchouli, and body odor.  We should probably also assume that one needs to already be high as a kite to find it at all palatable.  Is it a coincidence that the aim in this experiment is a sort of synesthesia, which just happens to be a side effect of LSD?  Really?

Maybe this is an indication that the winemaker needs to get out of his garage more often (or perhaps not at all).
