Wine

OK, I’m not as big of an Anime fan as I used to be. Many of these newer series suck righteous balls, but Neon Genesis Evangelion has held a special place in my nerdy little heart. Packed with action, drama and more teen angst then an episode of Gossip Girl, it’s been able to hold it’s own as a timeless series in Japanese animation. The products associated with it however are another story. With over 6000 different products with the series stamped on it, some can get pretty pricey. But, that’s nothing to those willing to spend a bit more for their collection.

Limited to only 333 bottles, these  750ml bottles will set you back a more then a pretty penny. Labeled as “Evangelion Sparkling” each bottle of wine will set you back only a mere $600 but hey it’s only booze right? Wrong.

HELLO!!! Kitty Booze

hello-kitty-wine

Wowwy! I never understood the Hello Kitty craze. It never made sense. Out of all the things that survived from my 80’s experience, Hello Kitty, was a bunch of toys and a show that vanished in the 90’s. But it has such a harsh Japanese following that it has surpassed irrelevance to major popularity. Hence Hello Kitty Wine. The only thing coming out of that franchise I can get behind, a nice Devil Red to get you all lit up,so you can forget all about Hello Kitty. These are the brand specialties that you can select from.

  • Hello Kitty Sparkling Brut Rosé – A deep reddish pink sparkling rose made from 100% Pinot Noir that has a frothy mousse as well as a pretty nose of rose petal and red currant scents.
  • Hello Kitty Sparkling “Sweet Pink” (Half Size) – This semi-sweet sparkler sports a pale pink hue and has very delicate bubbles.
  • 2008 Hello Kitty Angel White – This is a fresh, very “blanc” white wine made entirely from Pinot Noir free run juice.
  • 2006 Hello Kitty Devil Red – Garnet red with brickish highlights, this is a classically rendered Pinot Noir that presents a seductive bouquet of wild flowers and forest aromas
