Case of Whine

Case of Whine

Properly aged
and allowed to breathe
you will produce
a fine bouquet – sweet,
slightly fruity,
silky, spicy,
a fine balance
of heady and hearty;  
but, failing that,
the results may be
more volatile:
tart, tired, acidic, bitter,
even harsh, perhaps,
 with a hollow hint of
(dare I say it?)
sour grapes.

In the end,
what you ferment
is what you decant.
