"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

I also add marinated artichoke hearts to this sometime and I serve it with Zucchini patties with Greek yogurt and that's all you need for dinner. Makes a very pretty plate and everyone loves it. Enjoy
