02/18/2005: Fit to be a souvenir of your visit to Graceland, but not for much else?
Over at Slate, Mike Steinberger gives us a rundown on various celebrity wines. Here's what he has to say about the wine that's currently being hawked in the name of Memphis's Best Loved Dead Rock Star™:
Elvis Blue Suede Chardonnay 2001, Jailhouse Red Merlot 2002, Blue Christmas Cabernet 2002, $10 for the chardonnay and the merlot, $17 for the cabernet
The thin, medicinal Jailhouse Red Merlot is bad enough to start a jailhouse riot. The cabernet is better, but not good. The chardonnay is too sweet, but that's not an uncommon problem in discount California chardonnays.
