Vintner’s Night Before Christmas

The harvest was perfect

The crush was A-1

Total production was

Up 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!”
