Niederosterreich Zweigelt 2016

Nice table wine that’s not pure fruit; there’s enough acid and a little tannin here that makes it a good table wine for all seasons and most meals. Only complaint is that it lacked a little freshness, but that could be because it’s been sitting on the market shelf for a few years. — 8 days ago

Fruity with high acid, so brightly it seems like it’s bubbly. — 11 days ago

Lion Grüner Veltliner 2017

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Pops conductor Keith Lockhart is leading a live-to-picture performance of Star Wars: A New Hope, a showing of the classic 1977 film, with the Orchestra performing Mr. Williams’ iconic score.
For live-to-picture productions, the orchestra performs the entire movie score in real time as the film unspools. (Vocals, dialogue and effects are isolated from the original music track.)
Generally we get to hear Star Wars scores a couple times per season here at Tanglewood, but tonight we get a chance to hear them with the backdrop of the movie (Episode IV) that launched a franchise, to say the least!

I celebrated another full trip around the sun, since my coming into this world, earlier this week. Tonight my wife, some dear friends and me will be enjoying some enticing wines along with our movie night. So notes...maybe, but I'll try!

Kremstal DAC Reserve Pfaffenberg Riesling 2014

16.5/20 (90/100) Аромат мёда, абрикосов, тон ботритиса. Умеренная тельность, довольно высокая кислотность. Солоноватость во вкусе. На вкус слабее, чем того обещает аромат. — 23 days ago

Delectable Wine

Limpid onion skin. Bright and sharply focused on the nose, displaying fresh strawberry, citrus pith and floral scents and a hint of minerality. Taut and light on its feet, featuring orange zest, pomegranate and honeysuckle flavors that show very good clarity and spicy cut. Closes taut and brisk, showing very good persistence and a repeating floral note. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2019) — 3 days ago

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this afternoon with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our conductor Andris Nelsons is leading GERSHWIN (Piano Concerto in F), GERSHWIN (Variations on “I Got Rhythm,” for piano and orchestra) and STRAVINSKY (Petrushka) with the amazing Jean-Yves Thibaude as the piano soloist on the two first works presented today. Jean-Yves is by far among our favorite pianists to grace the Koussevitzky Shed stage, so graceful, yet poignant!

Hot days call for cool wines, today there are some fun ones planned for sharing.

Nose has crazy apricot flesh, orange blossom, grapefruit zest and pineapple.

Palate has pleasurable acidity with citrus bias, sweet impressions but dry finish, glass coating viscosity.
