This Morning’s Prompt

Wine Tasting

My Inspired Story

“This rosé pairs great with the chocolate. Take a bite, and then a sip. What flavors do you taste?” the instructor says.

My wife nibbles at the chocolate. She moves for the final glass in a line of five we’ve tasted so far, spins it around to swirl the faint pink liquid, peers into the glass to examine the viscous wine legs cascading down the sides, then tips it into her mouth.


“Mmmm, I taste hints of raspberry.” She smacks her lips. “Much sweeter with the chocolate. Which is this one?”

“Zinfandel,” I answer.

She points down to the scoring card. “Write it down.”

I scribble with the pen. So far, our Christmas wine list is…everything.
