Default Opinions on Port wine label!

Please let me know what you think! The shrink wrap top is silver. I noted "fortified" because 1/2 this batch is fortified with Everclear and 1/2 is not.

Cap the "M" in "made"

Positioning of "FORTIFIED" is slightly awkward. I would put
it under 2009 or above chocolate. I would not make the
Fortified text larger than the wine name.

Nice label. Did you paint the picture?

Wow! That is one sweet label. Normally I can see something I would change personaly if it where mine. I can honestly say I can't think of a thing with this one. Very nice work!

Ha Ha! Now that 0202 brings it up I can see a few tweaks needed here or there, but generally speaking ..."It Sweet!"

I struggled with where, or if, to include the "fortified' designation. I tried other spots and can't find a better one. I did capitalize the "M" - thanks!

BTW: I stole the pic off the Internet.

Here is my previous port.

Here is a draft pinot grigio that I did not go with, I used a different picture.

Additional designations like that fortified can be tricky.

One thing that makes it pop out is that it is the single
most differnet text. You have a script font (cursive)
for all the other text, and it's all black.

The "fortified" is red, and is in sans serif.

I'd use a font that was script, or sans serif but very
thin to play on the elegance of the script fonts. You're
SUPPOSED to see it so it's not that big of a deal,
honestly it reminds me of a post-printing stamp.

I like your choice of pictures.

personally I would try a different text along the side for the "Made, fermented.... " IMO. But overall a great label!
