Regional Reds



Photographing the latest selection of regional reds 
hardly expresses my admiration - but the picture’s 
much better at saying, ‘hmm, now here’s were the 
palate gets to rule’ - so in a sense it is flavours we
were schooled in; those tannins express things we 
dream about much better than imagination, tasted 
and reasoned as Cabernet, Grenache, Merlot and 
Shiraz, with a spicy plum hint of Tempranillo to go 

So my poem for the day’s pondering on events yet 
to take place, certainly not too far away, maybe as 
accompaniment for haute cuisine - or of the BBQ - 
where even the meekest ribeye magnifies itself on 
the threshold of grandeur & perfection savoured in 
the taste of dark berry fruit that it certainly favours
