Excellent drinking wine! — 2 days ago
A very interesting wine. Definitely spatburgunder from a flavor profile. But classic burgundy from a style profile. Very elegant and balanced. Sort of a soft early season cherry fruit. It has acidic balance but much less pronounced than most fass wine on the attack. May be the vintage. More on the finish which is sprightly. Long and elegant with cherry perfume. ... as this aerates it has this wackily gorgeous cherry flower thing going on. In 3 years this could drink like a $150 wine. Which makes sense as it’s grand cru terroir even if it cost $30 or so. Finish is sweet cherry licorice. WOW. Approaching top 10 lifetime qpr. So elegant. ... as this evolves it’s so delicious in a unique way. — 5 days ago
Loads of spicy apricots & peaches with some pineapple plus a pinch of white pepper and maybe some anise? Quite powerful and broad (Pfalz obviously) yet well balanced, focused and elegant. I like the precision on the palate and the long, spicy finish.
Great for an entry level wine and so much better than the Kalkmergel. — 6 days ago
Beautiful a bit sweet with vanilla notes, Oakey, pear green apple. — 21 days ago
Crushed rocks, white flowers, and lemon-lime on the nose. Same on the palate, plus starfruit/underripe pineapple, and some passionfruit. High acidity well balanced with a touch of RS. — 23 days ago
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! — 2 days ago
