Look Familiar?

Do the wine bottles on Falkner Winery’s otherwise excellent website bear a striking resemblance to the ones on Cork’d?

It looks like they’ve taken the following steps when reusing Dan Cederholm’s design elements:

  1. Added some color to the mini-bottle label
  2. Used the wine bottles with the label replaced
  3. Resized, rotated, and drop-shadowed the large bottle
  4. Used a less distinctive and italicized font for the buttons

Here’s a screenshot of the current site for posterity.

Update: The wine bottle images have been “changed” … the gradients have been removed and the bottles tilted (perhaps they’ve been “redrawn”) as pictured below. Also, all of the visitor comments about these events have been deleted from their blog.
