It's now being confirmed by twodifferent blogs: Little Jonathan Winery is indeed the brainchild of rapper and budding beverage mogul Lil Jon. While so many of his colleagues are promoting harder stuff, Jon is offering his own merlot, chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon in slick black bottles. Not exactly what I imagine when someone offers me some "Crunk Juice," but Jon is obviously looking to tap the underserved markets for "Quiet Night With Your Guy/Lady Juice" and "Mom and Dad Are Visiting Juice."
Many of you will notice the stark packaging difference between this and Jon's other beverage, the non-alcoholic Crunk!!! Energy Drink, which features pomegranate, caffeine and lots of other things I cannot and will not pronounce. Dear God, please do not mix this with Little Jonathan merlot.
