No, sir, I don't like it.

Here's the latest from the screwcap front:

R. H. PHILLIPS WINERY ANNOUNCES A WHOLE NEW TWIST [press release]



Is it just me, or do those bottles look like ass? I kinda like my wine bottles to have a tall neck, not these weird stubby things. And those TOPP closures... they really should stay on hard alcohol where they belong. Give me Stelvin any day of the week.

[ObWineCriticism: RH Phillips wines are nothing special. They're largely interesting because they're grown in a weird part of California - kind of northwest of Sacramento - where there aren't any other wineries. Their Toasted Head label also has a very cute bear on it. However, I'd avoid their stuff unless you're buying it for the label. Most of their wines are of good quality but unexceptional; save your pennies for the companies that really deserve it, like Bonny Doon, Ridge, or Cline.]
