I love collections of ephemera. I love wine. So I'm going to start recording the bottles of wine I drink, good and not-so-good. Unfortunately for this project, I've recently cut back on the amount of alcohol I consume, largely in an attempt to cut calories (boring!), but also due to my tendency, aggravated of late, to have a few glasses and put my foot in my mouth (slightly more interesting). Tonight's inaugural bottle doesn't deserve a fanfare, but here it is.

Wild Bunch, 2004. California.

Described as "California Red Wine," a little vague for the price (I paid $8 after a $5 discount). Love the tattoo-art bottle but the wine itself is tooth-rottingly sweet with very little body and less complexity.
