Have you ever seen or smelled a wine so amazing that you would have loved to take a sip? A wine so beautiful and vibrant in color that you just had to stare? A wine that just seem to take hold of all your senses and hold you there? Well if you have sipped such a wine, you are very lucky
I’ve come across many wines before, but there was none so that was as full as this. It had eveything, the smell, the color, even taste (though I never tasted it, i knew it had a rich flavor). It was all that I ever looked for in a wine. It was the epitome of beauty, scent, age and taste. I was left intoxicated by it, I never tasted it, yet it held me in its grasp. Like the Amontillado that drew Fortunato to his death, this wine drew me in too. (I’m pretty sure that it wouldn’t have been death at the end of the tunnel though )
It stayed in my thoughts for days, weeks, months. There was no other wine like this. I longed and desired to have that wine. I couldn’t do anything though, it never came to me and I couldn’t force it to come. Doing so would just be selfsh and not like me. For months I tried to get it but to no avail. The wine seemed to elude me.
Yes, I’ve come to a decision. This wine can never be mine to taste. It will never be held in my hand, nor will I ever taste it to really appreciate its beauty. After months of trying, I know that I can never have this wine so why live in agony? I’ll just let it go and move on…
