The 2020 wine review series is called Refuge. While 2019 felt in many ways like a year of survival, and lent itself to the dense compartments of discipline and prediction in reviewing and writing, the year ahead holds powerful promise for renewal, renaissance, and reflection. In this vein lives the undeniable Siren’s song of the imagination. You’ll find reviews each week in poetic formats that allow more light to get in between the vines by virtue of creative license. There is a certain comfort in containment. But there is exhilaration in freedom. I am eager to move forward with you in the exploration of Refuge!
Look for the first episode of Refuge next Friday. In the meantime, I hope you will take a chance on this week’s truly inspiring Lifevine Cab. This vintner is fully committed to purity of ingredients and freedom from pesticides. You’ll taste the difference in this wine immediately as the cinnamon and cedar, juniper and vanilla, currant and smoke effervesce from your glass. I’ll be lifting a glass to you, Violet’s Vines readers, as we begin the next leg of our journey. Welcome to Refuge…
