Writing good Haiku is not an easy task. It’s much easier to communicate a message using 1000 words than using 100 words. And it’s very difficult to communicate impressions with about 20 words.
This fact alone makes "The Red Wine Haiku Review" something to see.
The Red Wine Haiku Review is a wine blog that reviews wines….using Haiku. For example:
Panarroz Jumilla 2003 (Spain)
Fat luscious droplets
Another Spanish hat trick
Three grapes & five stars
Red Bicyclette Syrah 2002 (France)
And as fresh as a spring rain
I’m common, sue me
This approach recalls the Wine X approach to wine reviews, which clearly worked its influence throughout the wine reviewing community. Will Red Wine Haiku Review have a similar influence? Will we read more wine haiku being published? No. However, this is one fun diversion and I hope more haiku comes from the author, Lain Steinberg
