  1. Arnica montana is a moderately toxic flowering plant in the sunflower family used as an herbal medicine for analgesic and anti-inflammatory purposes. It is also known as wolf's bane and leopard's bane; aconitum, in the family Ranunculaceae, is another plant known by these names and is extremely poisonous. (Medea tried to kill Theseus by putting it in his wine so that her son Medus could inherit the throne of Athens.)

  2. Pinot noir is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The vine has tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit, giving the wine its name (pine + black). Because the grape is difficult to grow, winemaker André Tchelistcheff insisted that "God made Cabernet Sauvignon whereas the devil made Pinot Noir." However, master sommelier Madeline Triffon called pinot "sex in a glass," and Joel Fleischman called it "the most romantic of wines, with so voluptuous a perfume, so sweet an edge, and so powerful a punch that, like falling in love, [it makes] the blood run hot and the soul wax embarrassingly poetic."
