Some days are just too perfect. Words somehow lack the means of effectively communicating the experience. Poets have ways of transporting us to places and times of great beauty; alas I am not a poet. I am a wine writer armed with joy, gratitude, enthusiasm, and an iPhone 6S. Today, that will have to be enough.
