I have unearthed Eldorado. I have found the absolute worst wine/label combination known to intelligent life. This dubious honor goes to the putrid 2000 Thunder Mountain Pinot Noir. The best way I can describe this wine is if one took a glass of Welch’s grape juice and added an equal part of the cheapest brand of rotgut bourbon you could find. Thus creating a beverage which is sickly sweet, unbalanced, woody and alcoholic. And the label! Look at this monstrosity! Appears that He-Man has decided to sell his stock in Castle Greyskull to try his hand at winemaking. Where’s Skeletor when you need him?
