Four Vines 2005 Anarchy.gif
If you haven’t tried it, here is the wine for anarchists: the Four Vines Anarchy. It’s a wonderful Syrah and Zinfandel and Mourvedre blend that comes from the Four Vines winery. This quote embellishes the back of the bottle:

“A mind cannot be controlled. It cannot be restrained. It has no boundaries. It has its will. Anarchy is the true nature of all things.” ~Alex Battig

Update: I’ve emailed back-and-forth with one individual at the winery, and I was told this interesting story: “The irony in this is that we found that quote on a blog about Anarchy. Alex was a young boy from Germany when he wrote it. The winemaker had no clue who he was but found the quote and thought it was a perfect explanation of Anarchy. We were just contacted a few months ago by Alex who was pleasantly surprised to find his quote on our bottle.”
