9. Finest Vintage
Aragorn thoughtfully sipped his glass of wine. It was one of Rivendell's finest, a rare vintage that Master Elrond only brought out on special occasions.
Aragorn had enjoyed the sharp, sweet taste on many memorable days. Despite Elrond's sorrow at his daughter's choice, the wine had toasted Aragorn's homecoming after his great deeds in Rohan and Gondor. The same vintage had celebrated Frodo's recovery.
Today brought the culmination of Aragorn's long years of waiting as he celebrated his union with Arwen. The wine was even better than he recalled, but the kisses that awaited him would be sweeter by far.
