Heh, another humorous wine review

"The second wine, though, the Chateau d'Orschwihr 2004 Alsace Pinot Blanc Bollenberg that's featured in today's tasting report, was way, way over the top, a wine so profoundly afflicted that it reminded me of wearing a dirty wool sweater while sitting in a dumpster eating rotting canteloupes on a hot summer day."

Not too likely to read that in Wine Spectator...

Here's my review of the Charles Shaw "Three Buck Chuck" 2003 Cabernet Savignon: "Dang this stuff is good. It ain't crappy like that expensive high-falutin' stuff. Mix it with some fruit juice and you got some great sangria!".

I wonder when the reviewer was last ". . . wearing a dirty wool sweater while sitting in a dumpster eating rotting canteloupes on a hot summer day."
