Swayed by the Label

I can't resist wine labels with images of a bicycle. I also figured I couldn't go wrong with a Cabernet from Chile. Boy, did I make a mistake! The vintage stung my palette—not exactly smooth. But I can't toss wine down the sink unless it's turned to vinegar. I got through the bottle. However, I will never buy that brand again.

Who else is influenced by two wheels on a label?

  1. If anything has 'two wheels' on it then I'll be a sucker for it...Stupid I know, but in some ways it makes the choice of anything much simpler....

  3. I've bought several bottles of wine just because they had a bicycle on the label, including this same one you bought. I never bought a second bottle for the reasons you mention.

  4. Bought some ravioli from Trader Joes that had a badly-drawn bike on it. Not bad (the pasta, that is.)

  5. Me and not just limited to food or beverage. Clothing is another one. Trying to use a little more restraint now.
