Funny lookin' bottle.

I bought the J. Mourat, Fiefs Vendeens, Collection, Loire Valley, France, 2007 as a recommendation from Susan and Tracy at Venokado, but it also happened to match my penchant for funny lookin' bottles. I have an ear that goes a little funny, so I have a soft spot in my heart for the oddballs. 

The truth is, the wine in the bottle wasn't funny at all. It was sort of serious. I mean serious like Matthew McConaughey with his shirt off. Slightly fruity with good muscle and nice structure. It's a blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Negrette. 

$18 at Venokado. Tres Hollywood for tres cheap.
