Vintner’s Night Before Christmas 2011

The harvest was risky
There was little sun
Total production was
Down by a ton

The wine was all bundled
Up snug in French oak
Fermentation awakened
Amid memories of cold soak

Who will now buy it?
And how will it be priced?
Will Parker anoint it?
Will the Prince be enticed?

Well, wait until morning
You’ve earned a respite
A cool glass of Pinot
And to all, a “Good Night”

Best Wishes, Happy Holidays, and Sweet Pinot Dreams
