Thieves walk out of Texas store with cases of Duckhorn -- and come back for more

The PR department at Duckhorn Vineyards sent me the news video below, and why not? What better praise for your product than two men risking jail time to heist it?

It's a really brazen crime -- they walk into the store, load up a cart with cases of Duckhorn Merlot, and walk out. Then, a couple days later, they come back for the Duckhorn Cabernet. Really guys, you ought to try the Sauvignon Blanc; that's my favorite Duckhorn wine lately. Perhaps there's not as much resale value, though. Hey, does anyone know how much Duckhorn Cab sells for on the street?

I guess Duckhorn is now the Ford F-250 of wines: Most Stolen in the United States. Congratulations!

Here's the official statement from Duckhorn:
Though we appreciate the brand loyalty, clearly good taste doesn’t mean good judgment (or morals). We hope you enjoy this short news clip, which has inspired our new company motto: Duckhorn Vineyards, “Not Just Any Type of Hooch!”
Our cellar recommendation--10 to 20 years!
