Best of 2012 lists?

Merry Christmas to all the readers of Rogue Strands! I won't be doing any "Best of 2012" lists, as I've got an ever-growing aversion to absolute rankings and points-scoring for stuff that involves personal interpretation, such as poetry and wine. What's more, some extremely flawed or limited poems or bottles can also provide great pleasure if they fit the moment, while other huge achievements can turn out to be somewhat dull on the physical and emotional palate.


  1. Spot on, Matthew. Wishing you a happy Christmas with the family and a prosperous new year of wine blending and selling. John.
