    I second your recommendation of Vitus, but I don't suggest that Ed should drink anything!

    Not surprising. Smoking loon doesn't sound like a wine I would have great expectations for.

    It's actually a pretty decent earthy cabernet. If you don't like that style of wine that's your biz but it's a lot better than many labels in the price range.
    What once upon a time made Van Halen unique in the progression of metal and hard rock (besides Eddie’s prowess as a guitarist) was its sense of fun, its willingness to be not just over the top, but weird.

    I always thought it was cool...in a way, that Ed and Al - multi millionaires - drank the shittiest, cheapest alcohol. Schlitz and Loon.

    I tried Heineken once when I was a teenager because Ed drank it. Never touched it again. Tried Bud once too. Even the crappiest beer here in Australia taste better than that shit.

    FOR THOSE WITH AN APPETITE FOR ADVENTURE,
    THOSE IN TOUCH WITH THEIR INNER LOON,
    THOSE WHO CONSIDER PRETENSE SIMPLY UNNECESSARY;
    SMOKING LOON IS FOR YOU.
    http://smokingloon.com/

    ABOUT

    Smoking Loon wines are crafted on a very simple premise: good wine doesn't need to take itself so seriously. Originally named for Don Sebastiani's love of cigars and his father August's passion for water fowl (don't ask, long story), Smoking Loon offers an irreverent, tongue-in-cheek approach to enjoying wine. Smoking Loon's full-bodied wines embody the independent, bohemian spirit of our very own California, delivering wines of distinctive quality and value that are wholly without pretense.

    As with any good adventure, each vintage of Smoking Loon starts out with a voyage. Our winemakers search the best growing regions—both here in California and across the globe—for the best fruit of the vintage. Then, they work to craft smooth, lower-acid wines with distinctive fruit and rich, oaky notes.

    You can find a decent bottle of wine for less than $12, but Smoking Loon is $6 for a reason.

    IMO, for wines in the $10 range, the Loon is pretty good, especially the Cab. It's been a few years since I've had some. Is there anything left in that bottle?

    I've had it a couple of times, but it has been several years. It wasn't bad for what it was. Is it as good as a $100 bottle of Cakebread Cabernet? Of course not.
