Your overanalyzing a simple metaphor.
Nothing about that is going to lead you to understand the story.
Jacob is Jacob...he's not a cork.
The Island is an Island...its not a bottle.
And Smokie is smokie....he's not wine.
Your not suppose to take a metaphor and analyze to this level of detail.
Ok, so Smokie is wine so Paul Masson will sell no wine before its time...so that means Smokie is not ready for sale?...or does that mean Smokie has turned to vinegar? Perhaps Smokie started out as Champaign and became wine because he couldn't be released? Forget it. Seriously...its a metaphor...thats it.
"We set up this thematic debate between faith and empiricism, basically, in many different iterations of the show, that is what our story has been about" Carlton Cuse (1:00)
