Vintages of delight.

I sip slowly from the crystal

The stemmed glass releases

Subtle, fruity semi-sweetness

The blush, of white Zinfandel

My palate races, tantalizing my id

Aromatics blossom and surround

My nostrils engage in Freudian delight

Nectar from a master vintner

A marriage of ebon grape

Dark swirling secrets in woody casks

A vintner's passionate desire

To elate the pallates

Of lovers of Zinfandel

Sip a glass of California delight

Let your palate be sated

Black art released

With the pop, of a cork

This reminds me of when I used to make wine. I do not claim that it was "fine" wine but is certainly "did the trick." Thank you for sharing this homage to the elixir from the vine, Jon. Love and peace,

Oh Yeah! This is splendid tribute to the vine Jon! I love the way you constructed this,i'm sipping with delight, but have yet to get up and pour a glass for myself!;-)

I always wanted to write something about wine, because I find myself indulged once in a while. I'm glad I haven't written anything, because you would have put me to shame. This is beautiful work!
