Cuvée Christine Alsace Gewürztraminer 1976

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!

Bought this in 2014, how we managed to hold it this long is beyond me... Didn't pay the price in the picture, wish I had though.

Nose has dirty honey, dried orange peel, very over-ripe tangerine and dried citrus.
Palate has orange honey, dried honeysuckle, dehydrated orange peel, partially dried orange, very dry lychee and faint rose petal.
Just a fantastic bottle, with a fully intact cork! Happy birthday for sure!
