Wild feral nose. Red cherries, spice, loads of spice, chestnut, wood shavings, violets but wow spice. Must be the Frühburgunder. Palate is hyper elegant with lovely finely knit tannins and mid season cherry fruit. Very pure. Juicy. Needs a few hours to open. Finish starts off short. I’ll be back.
After 20 minutes this got sick. Huge violets on the nose and the finish is long, complex and lingering now. Gorgeous sweetness and purity. Dazzlingly fresh and long. — a month ago
Fleshy and ripe crisp green apple, Meyer lemon, sweet and savory fresh herbs, dried coriander and white pepper. A touch of petrol, likely from the bottle age. Generous in the fruit department but still has that Gruner spice that makes this a great pairing for Indian. Nice at $18 or so. — 18 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! — a month ago
Well bodied and complex. Nice color and good ”smell” — 9 days ago
Round, full bodied, falls on the sweeter side. Honey and stewed peaches/apricots. Low or unnoticeable acidity, medium finish. — a month ago
