Wine labels and shelf talkers that really say something

My Fellow Inebriates,

I don’t know about you, but I could get lost in the liquor store. Trying to make sense of wine labels and shelf talkers is tough work, but somebody’s got to do it.

Winemaker’s Notes:
Kangaroos can grow 6 ft. tall. Keeping them out of the vineyards can be quite a challenge. Like the Ass, kangaroos can be somewhat stubborn; a real pain… You’ll feel no pain with this fine aussie shiraz. Full bodied with flavors of ripe berry fruits and subtle oak. Great with BBQ, red meats or mature cheeses.

 

That’s actually a useful guideline at the bottom of the label. You know you’re ripped out of your mind when you find yourself asking, “Why not?”

 

If wine tasting can only rid itself of its snobbish element, you’ll find all sorts of wonderfully specific tasting notes for every lifestyle.

 

As wine connoisseurs will tell you, barnyard is a legitimate tasting note that’s not always unwelcome. So why not feces in general?

 

According to reviewers, this is not a misnomer.

    The first time I heard someone describe wine as tasting like cat piss in a good way, I thought he was a pervert.

    • liquorstorebear says :

      You never know. That cat-piss odor is legit in wine, though, especially sauvignon blanc. Not my fave, although certainly welcome in the absence of other varietals 😉

What's your poison? Drop me a line.
