As you may have heard here
, Cycles Gladiator has been banned in the state of Alabama after being deemed pornographic by the ABC.
From Bill Leigon, President of Hahn Family Wines
"The ABC did, in fact, approve the label when the wine came into the market in 2006, but suddenly changed its mind late last year. We were unaware of the new ruling until now when it was deemed pornographic. This is a new phenomenon for the company, which has sold more than 600,000 cases of Cycles Gladiator across the United States and around the world since 2006. No one else has complained about the label art. We will dutifully comply with all state laws and is doing so in this matter."
