Little Box, Little Box of Horrors
I'm no oenophile. Frankly I've found most of the oenophiles I've met pretentious posturing boors. I've never liked wine all that much. Perhaps I've got an unsophisticated palate. I think I just prefer single malt Scotch and Irish whiskey. While I was at Brian's I saw several ads for this new "Fish Eye Wine Cask" which can hold the equivalent of 4 bottles of wine in a refrigerator. Apparently, the pig has a new shade of lipstick. The box of wine that I remember (barely) from college has been resurrected as the "wine cask." They're apparently sinking 4.5 million dollars into advertising this for the first half of 2007, according to the San Francisco Business Times.
