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 blackberry jam on toasted brioche, violet,
bruised Tai basil, blueberry seeds and crushed ripe black currant.

Palate has peppered black raspberry, black cherry, tomato leaf and well concentrated blueberry jam.

@Carla Hine Thanks for sharing, top candidate for wine of the afternoon, along with the Minges Scheurebe!!!

So silky, whiff of Brett blows off quickly to reveal pure and bright black cherry fruit. Brilliant

1.5L. Somewhat excessively horsey on opening, but on night three its come into its own. Bloody, steamy, juicy.

Everything’s in harmony here. Bright crunchy berry fruit, wild cherries, candied citrus and fresh navel orange zest. Savory herbs, baking spices, and a crystalline minerality are present, with just a slight touch of funk. Long round acid-driven finish. Super clean, focused, and vibrant. A reference point for complex yet drinkable Beaujolais.

Pretty amazing texture. Super silky. A little cleaner than the cote du py & less barnyard (Brett)funky aromatics. Dark, rich layers of cherry fruit. A lot of brettanomyces here but still very enjoyable. 2014 vintage

This is in a nice place and felt like half Barolo and half Cru Beaujolais - 2007

Garnet with red reflections. Sour and acetone nose, fresh, but kind of a mess, and not showing structure. A bit of appleskin bitterness on finsh. Dry finish. Ok/sweet fruit and pencil; more generous. Good

Dark cherries opening up to lavender and thyme, with a hint of vanilla on the finish. Lovely.
