Signs of the Apocalypse #2036

Forget the incongruity of having an elephant garbed in an Indian motif representative of a California Riesling.  No, that’s the least of the situation.

It’s the trunk that jumps out mostly … the elephant trunk that is about 2/3’s longer in proportion than it should be with a snout that looks like a hand from a dead body being dragged by a zombie.

Then, the name throws off the entire thing.  Longhurschlong—faux German enough to throw off Aunt Millie, but cheeky enough to draw snickers.

The web site has user quotes along the lines of, “A surprisingly explosive finish.”

I ask you reader:  Brilliant or despicable?

The parent company, Liquid Brands, describes it as a “pet project…targeted towards alternative lifestylers and the young at heart.” Presumably because these folks like dick jokes and sophomoric humor.

Amusing - Not.  More like tacky and low-class.

Well, if you find that offensive, then I guess the most successful label from Columbia Gorge marketing genius David Barringer of Naked Winery would bring out the police. Every Label is replete with a dozen or more sexy double entendres. Some would clearly make many wine lovers blush. In fact, in order to better market his wines in more traditional venues like bottle shops and grocery stores, he has a second label (only a little less suggestive) called “O” which I was told by employees in the tasting room stands for “Orgasmic”. We can only wish for a wine that potent - but it’s just a wine appreciation analogy right?
