Who's in the Wine Business Now? Motörhead

Guess you can't be a hip aging rock star unless you have a wine to call your own: AC/DC did it. So did members of Whitesnake and Queensrÿche. Up next? Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead, who has an Australian Shiraz available in Scandanavia (where they've already sold 130,000 bottles), Germany and the UK. The wine apparently tastes of "vanilla, blackberries, plums, eucalyptus and liquorice," which doesn't sound terribly rock and roll at all, although casks do seem to be emblazoned with the evil-looking Motörhead logo.

So now you're probably thinking, "The only thing that would make this better is an unboxing video of a small child opening the 2009 Motörhead Shiraz with a butter knife, set to polka." You ask, Eater delivers:
