Thranduil poured the wine into a goblet of clear crystal and lifted it towards the sun streaming through the window.  Light shone through the wine, glowing a pure dark ruby red.   It carried a scent of blackberries and summer, reminding him of long hot days and warm nights.  He swirled the wine in the glass and then took a careful sip.  The wine tasted of fruit and sunshine, with a soft hint of cinnamon.
