Four drunks walk into wine country...

…to check out Paso Robles this weekend with these knuckleheads.

Saturday night was a blur,

Paper Boy Wine

…for a couple reasons.

First, because we’re suckers for labeling, and that character is pretty damn cute.

Second, it’s from Paso Robles, which is one of our favorite wine towns.

Lastly, and admittedly probably the most important factor, it has sweet packaging. The bottle is made out of compressed recycled cardboard, the label features natural inks, and when you crack the casing open you’ll find a fully recyclable plastic bladder inside.

Supposedly, it uses only 15% of the energy that an average glass bottle uses during production.

The wine’s okay, too. The longer you let it aerate, the better it tastes.

This is as close to a review as you’re gonna get,

For about thirty seconds, at least.

And here’s my early Christmas gift to you all:

…that not only has a drink named “The Jenna Jameson,” but also uses the word “pucker” in its description.

…a few months ago. You may remember that from this post.

We bought one bottle of wine from each of the vineyards we stopped at. Every once in awhile, KB and I will pop one open for the night. This past weekend we opened this:

It’s a Petite Sirah/Syrah blend called Achilles Weakness from Red Soles Winery. It’s so goddamn good.

I admit, I’m more of a $3-bottle-of-swill kind of guy when it comes to wine, but this stuff is worth every penny. If you’re interested in checking it out for yourself, click here.
