Why does Chuck always find a little pencil in his wine?
This Merlot is no exception, and another thing that’s really nice
Is the dash of cedar wood spice.
The faint smell of earth and dusty cocoa
Would make anyone happily loco.
And please be sure to lick your lip
Or else you’ll miss out on the toasted rosehip.
With fig and dried plum and faint vanilla and orchid,
It’s a perfect wine, if I may be so candid.
