NOTICE ANYTHING unusual about this label?

This Beaujolais Villages [£4.99, Sainsburys] has been rendered anonymous by a faulty printing press. Its shelf-siblings were ink-annointed, but I can't remember the brand (the power of packaging). How curious this odd one out has got this far. Served cool and pleasant enough with musky, peppered-strawberry Hubba-Bubba notes. It's generally worth choosing a Villages over a standard Beaujolais, the Gamay grapes coming from better placed sites.
