    Default NC Names


    0 Not allowed!

    Why?

    Why is it that CC have proper names, nice names - belicosos, coronas, choix suprem, etc but NC have angry names - sinistro last cowboy, my uzi weighs a ton, pictures of skeletons and daggers...why???

    Is it a different demographic they sell to?

    I believe it’s a trend first adopted by wine makers some 20-25 years ago. Names such as the hangman’s daughter Syrah, enchanted path, snotty boy etc. etc. paired with funny and colorful labels sell more wine - sound better than Caruades de Lafitte to me.

    I read the names and think they're trying to sound 'hard'.... as if they're selling to bikers, huntsmen, gunslingers and tattooed gangsters lol

    I've no idea about the flavours but some of the box designs, the bands and names put me off quite a bit.

    I'm not their demographic for sure but they must be selling well.....

    From what I understand, NCs are geared towards the American market. Don’t let the branding put you off, there are some real gems in the NC world!

    A bit big. Not a problem if you take the band off early but I like to leave mine on. I had an avo the other day and couldn't get the band off which was annoying - it burned a bit then I stubbed it.
