Wow - last night I had a beaujolais nouveau (pronounced 'greenie') that had an odd combination. The typical horrid aroma of the 'give me 1000 poe! you have to because you are a greeter' with the pleasent but not often experienced combination of the 'I can actually spell and use proper english' body. Most unusual. Maybe after aging a bit the aroma will improve and will become a respected addition to the cellar.

I must say that I find the "I'm Bored" Whines a bit too common and bland, they are never aged and lack any potentcy. They are quite comparable to the culture and distinction of Boonesfarm.

Recently the "Payouts aren't enough" has been seen in stores again, right next to "Badges cost too much". The first time I tried that second one, I thought it tasted ok, but I really got soured on it quickly. I haven't tried the first one yet.

The elites should be payed 2 million times more than regular jobbers is a wonderful whine, however at a cost of 50 million PoE per bottle, it's not really worth the money.

I find the ironically contrasting complexities of 'X SHOUTS 'STOP SHOUTING' to pair well with its abrasively strong but short finish. A brisk little classic whine suitable for any party situation.

I'm still rather fond of Chateau Onyx STILL Doesn't Have Its Own Fruit, bottled exclusively in Viridian. The coy, teasing hints of mango and carambola in the bouquet never quite reach their full potential, but it's still a delightful bit of dessert whine with fruit flavors that punctuate one's creme brulee wonderfully.

Bottles of "Scammer" are fermented with the lesser known Grapes of Wrath in the Parley region in the northwest hills of Hunter. Foremost is the Haxxor, which is the celebrity of the region followed by Ban Evader, which is the most widely planted. The problem with many vintners in this region is that the Ban Evaders require lengthy aging to become approachable, with Haxxors to a lesser degree. Scammers are simpler, fruitier reds that can be produced and marketed sooner. It is deep purple in color and sets off with striking aromas of dark fruit. This melange of feigned rage, moral posturing, and blueberry flavors builds slowly to rich intensity. The whine is dry on the palate and shows austere tannins. It's clean, rich, and round in composition. Lovely and easy to appreciate.

Are you a purchaser or an advertiser?

I'd watch out for that line of whine, they went overboard with the sour grapes. Then again, the same can be said of the auto-divy flavor.

Yeah, that tends to happen when people give out open-invites to high-end tastings. So very low-brow.

I'm very sad that the FIX THE DARN EDIT BUTTON vintage is all but impossible to find nowadays. Occasionally on a stroll through Parley Vineyards I'll happen across one of these rare treasures, and it never fails to fill me with nostalgia.

Parley is no longer the only region producing fine whines. Fresh from the TTQA region, we have I Want to Edit the Trophy Page produced by Speculation Whinery. I recommend sipping it from the cup that comes on the Barfly trophy.

Of you could drink it directly from the bottle, after you've managed to unscrew the top (which is difficult after you've overindulged on i wuz band).

Something strange happened to me on the way to the Whinery...

Firstly, I was most unsurprised at the mass demand for "MORCONTROL BUTANS" from Badjobba whineries, which closely followed the release to the market of ATLAGTIS NOUVEAU. It's a very lazy flavour, most effortless in it's application to the palette

However, I'm sure if people thirsted less for this, they might noticed the masses of opportunities for scintillating effervescence offered by a Vineyard that's been running for so long everyone's forgotten they existed.

Yes, I heartily recommend a purchase from ORDUR & PLANC, followed by a GOOD shot of TEACHERS. It helps one get through the day, y'know, and has been know to enhance following mental perfomance.

I can see myself being a producer of the automatic double post whine.

Edit: The irony is that the first time I've ever noticed it not do a double post from here is right now.

Although so commonplace, it is thought to be the tackiest hostess gift, I privately enjoy my stock of I'm Not Enjoying Something that's Supposed to Be Fun. While the sweet tinges of schadenfreude are too overpowering for some, I find that they mellifluously contrast with the otherwise sour tones.

A very robust, yet young whine is the "Why do people have to say 'Good Game' to me even when I kick their butt?" produced by the D&S Whinery. It appears be coming with a great deal of free cheese too!
