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.
