In Vino, Cano

I can't recall if I've seen this before or not, but I like it just the same: The Red Wine Haiku Review, with versified opinions of 167 (and counting) wines. Here are a couple about labels I have drunk myself:

41) Moulin-A-Vent, DeBeouf (Beaujolais, France) 2003
Blueberry hot sauce
Summer is a state of mind
Let us all relax

82) Spinelli Tratturo Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2003 (Italy)
Tightly wrapped dried fruit
Lots of bright front mouth flavor
A tart small tit wine

140) Rosso di Montalcino, Caparzo, Vendemmia 2000 (Italy)
Sleepy antique store
Box full of faded postcards
Wine to browse life by

Of course, some of the reviews are much less flattering:

144) Stonehaven Shiraz 2004 (Australia)
Yea, right. Shiraz. Sure.
That there is raspberry juice!
I ain't no damn fool

Go browse.

Yips! to the Colossus, whose wine-blogging up a storm himself.

He's a lot tougher than me on the wine, but he's got some really great ones.

My favorite so far:

10)Clos Du Chapitre (Burgundy) 1981
Had to take a sip
Out of curiosity
Like suckling a corpse

That must have been a pretty grim bottle of wine.

Me, I envision myself as being the exemplar of the American-Bandstand-style-critic of the Vinosphere -- if it's got a good beat and you can dance to it, then it gets a thumbs up.
