Fine Wine Takes Its Time

Written by: Shani Fassbender

Grapes on the vine are heavy with flavor Fruit fragrance softly blowing through the air The harvest is near, then we may savor Picking swollen orbs until vine is bare From flower to ripened handle with care Pressing, barreling, and aging takes years Fine wine takes its time, to that I say, “Cheers!”
