Do you like claret? Wine reviewer writes haiku. (More fun than Parker.)

This is actually a good idea--keep your ideas concentrated rather than rambling on and on and on.

These are great! Not actually Haiku, though. They're technically senryƫ. Haiku are generally more serious, and usually have a nature theme or evoke a season.

Heh. I am reminded of a poem by John T. Baker, In Praise of Wine.
These are fun

Excellent!

It's interesting that he seemed surprised that the one NZ wine in his list had a screw cap. Most wine in NZ does, it seems - is this not the case elsewhere?

It will be. Screw caps are so much better. I don't understand why some people seem so attached to sealing their bottles with bits of wood.

Cool subject for a blog.

My favorite sauvignon blanc is from NZ -- and has a screw cap:
Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc
