Cheap wine, good company

I can't quite put my finger on how to best describe this bottle of wine (pictured below).

Classy would make for a good antonym. Gaudy? Cheesy? Sleazy? Something that might be found in a love motel's complimentary service package? Haha, I kid, I kid.

But in all seriousness, how can you not crack a smile? Cupid's on the cover, with full bow-and-arrow and a large gold-outlined, red heart for crying out loud. Even Two Buck Chuck can afford a better label! :P


Forgive me, for I am (clearly) easily amused.

That being said, the wine itself wasn't all that bad, albeit a bit watered down. But for the record, A) we're a little far from Napa if you know what I mean, and B) I tend to prefer watery Korean beer which makes it obvious that C) I know close to nothing on the topic of vino (or alcohol in general for that matter), unlike my wine connoisseur of a sister. (She probably would have sent it back, hehe.)

And in all fairness, the "Honeymoon" bottle was part of a $20 set special, complete with a huge plate of yummy seafood cream pasta and a cracker & prune plate. Besides, when you've got good company, nice conversation, and comfy surroundings, that's all the really matters, right? ^^

Forget the cheesy wine label- prunes and crackers?! What kind of food pairing is that???

Haha I KNEW you would come out of hiding for this one. ;) We thought they were olives upon first glance... but hey, you know I can eat prunes any day.

what vintage is the wine^^ I thought you had to be over 60 to legally eat prunes.
