Alyda Cuvée Prestige Brut Nature Chardonnay Blend

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!

Bramare Valle de Uco Malbec 2015

Intense black and red fruit indicative of cooler climate and high altitude, luscious nose with spice and bramble, oak, smokey, decent acidity and tannic without necessarily screaming for food. My kind of Malbec. — a day ago

Rocche dell'Annunziata Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2001

Suertes del Marques

7 Fuentes Vino de Villa Red Blend

Smells like my grandpa's cologne (Dolce & Gabana light blue or Yves Saint Laurent), spicy, and taste like soft pepper. Light bodied and delish. — 9 days ago

Manni Nössing

Eisacktaler Kerner 2014

Last week, I sat for three hours with Manni Nossing in his home and tasted through Kerners, Sylvaners, Gruners, and Muller Thurgous dating back to 2014 and through to the 2018s (set to bottle the next day). Manni has a style. Always crisp and green and even when fruit peeks through, it’s usually lean sour grapefruit and firm apricots. He is a mumbling jolly gentle giant with a great sense of humor. This 2014 Kerner was my favorite we tasted and he let me take the bottle for dinner that night. It has mysterious green herbal notes and high acid. Silver green lining, thyme, and lime. — 9 days ago

Palo Blanco Valle de la Orotava Listan Blanco 2016

Amazing nose with peach pit and salty-limestone character. Nice minerality and acidity on the palette. Medium to light bodied. Not much on the finish. Nice drinking wine. Still young but drinking well right now. — 6 days ago


Valle de San Vicente Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Sweet, jammy, easy drinking with a little tannin/alcohol bite on the end. Great for the tropics. — 9 days ago
