John Goldie and some Golden Wines

Well, I've now lost 44 pounds on my diet and am only sixteen pounds away from my goal. And they said it couldn't be done. Hah! However, every once and awhile I find a glass of wine in my hands. Wonder how that got there? Oh, well, can't pour it back so I've got two wines and a fabulous guitarist for you tonight. First the wines.

Acacia Pinot Noir $23.00: Nice fruity nose with hints of violets and touch of vanilla. Flavors follow the nose adding blueberry, plum, and strawberry to its complexity. Very elegant, smooth wine with a just enough oak and tannins for balance. Very nice wine.

Matua Valley Sauvignon Blanc $18.00: I love New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. The ones from Marlborough are some of the best. Unlike their California counterparts, they lack any trace of bitterness. Matua Valley is typical of NewZealand wines from the Marlborough region. Distinctive aroma of grapefruit and other citrus. The taste hints of lime, grapefruit and tropical fruits . Well balanced and refreshing. Lingering finish. Did I mention how much I love New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs?

And while your sipping one of those, check out John Goldie, a British acoustic jazz guitarist whom I dearly love. One of my favorite songs to play was/is "Summertime" from the musical Porgy and Bess. John does a fantastic rendition. He is one of the most listenable guitarists I know of and I love having his music on in the background while I write. Check out the videos then go buy his CD's from his website:
