There were lizards, monkeys, apes (all toys, of course), backpacks, outback hats, leopard prints, khaki, and tiger stripes. The wines were from Africa and Australia. My favorite wine of the evening was a Tukulu Pinotage (2006? I didn't take notes!) which was as smoky and luscious as any I've ever had. I shamelessly stole the cork.
