Can we really guarantee shipping for this one?
Yes, we are a reputable online wine website so we should be able to ship this no problem. But here’s the thing, these aren’t just three bottles of wine. They’re three bottles of Rival Wine. And when you put three rivals in a small enough area for a long enough time, stuff’s going to get out of hand.
You just never know. Maybe you’ll open the box and they’ll all be fine. Maybe, when they arrive at your front door, the three bottles of Rival Wine 2007 West Side Syrah will have become three bottles of Best Bud 2007 West Side Syrah, or at least Tolerable Acquaintance 2007 West Side Syrah. Maybe, with a healthy dose of friendship, their full mouth-feel will get even fuller and their deep purple hue will get even deeper. Maybe, instead of complimenting flavorful, sauced meat dishes like Duck Confit, they’ll start to compliment each other.
Yes, all of this is possible, but what’s the most probable outcome? Total mayhem. You get your package, excited to open it and pour yourself a glass of this delicious red, only to find that what should be an intense and sensuous aroma, full of red ripe cherry and white pepper joined by hints of tobacco, is now faint because the bottles are exhausted after wrestling the whole trip. Maybe you find that one bottle stole all of the strawberry jam and cherry flavors from the other bottles and now tastes way too fruity. Maybe you find that one bottle has knocked the tarry, dark plum and cooked Rhubarb out of another bottle. Maybe all of the rage built up under those corks has burnt away the coffee and chocolate notes on the back finish for all three.
Wait… you mean that’s just the winery name? So, they’re not actually rivals? Oh, well, then you should be fine.
