Cheap Red Wine

Whether you buy wine in a box or you have built a chilled cellar in your basement to store cases of 200 year old port, we all have one thing in common: one time or another we bought some cheap wine: MD 2020, Boone’s Farm, Mateus - come on, you know you have; maybe in college, maybe last week, perhaps tonight. Recently my eldest son and I were talking about the phenomenon of red wine, cigars and single malt scotch and we ended up having a real good time making up names for cheap red wines. We’d love for you to join us. If you’d care to add to the list please respond with a brand name and we’ll be most happy to add it and credit you. Perhaps we’ll even plant some grapes. Here’s a few names to help you get the picture:

Exit Ramp Hobo
Sleep Till Tuesday
Permanent Scar
Wake Up Dead
The Final Solution
Constant Pounding
What Did You Expect?
Hurts When I Pee
Uncle Jemima
Formaldehyde Lite
Will Work For Will Work For
Butts From the Gutter
Dirty Black Socks

Ok Thom. I've wasted an hour trying to find a user name that wasn't already taken just so I could register and participate in your childish little game. Good thing for you I have time to kill while I'm waiting for the rest of my life to start. Here are some cheapo red wines for your list:

Barfingdown Cellars
Ralph Inyerbeard
Rooster Wattle Red
Barking Cheeks
Buck Two-Eighty
P. Underbridge Winemakers
Gutter Home
Chatteau St.Vitus
Turning Thief
Rojo Bobo
Baggerhead And Dewer

I hope among these names you find the perfect one for the swill you are making.

I actually have in the garage somewhere, a bottle of "Night Train", that at first sip will make you shudder uncontrollably. I unscrewed it a few years ago, after a several year nap, and it actually smelled good. I screwed it back tho without tasting it again. It is still in there somewhwere.

I actually have somewhere in my garage, the remains of a bottle of "Night Train". It has the ability of making you shudder uncontrollably at the first sip. I unscrewed it a few years later, and it sort of smelled good, but I rescrewed it, and it remains in there somewhere yet.
