John Renbourn & La Storia Zinfandel

When I was in high school, a friend of mine who was anything but a guitar player, bought an album entitled “The Lady and the Unicorn” by John Renbourn. That was my first exposure to Celtic music and I’ve loved it ever since. Back in the 60’s he played with the group Pentangle along with another outstanding acoustic guitarist Bert Jansch. That was as the beginning of the rise of the folk era of music which later competed with the psychedelic scene for dominance in the late 60’s. His music is very peaceful listening. Hope you enjoy him.

Sweet Potato:

Bunyan’s hymn/I saw three ships:

English dance:

The Snows:

Cannonball Rag:

Lord Franklin:

The South Wind/Blarney Pilgrim:

Blues Run the Game:

Great Dreams from Heaven:

The Lady Goes to Church:

And along with a very classy guitarist I’m going to pair a La Storia Zinfandel from Trentadue Winery (usually about $26.00 but I got it on sale for $20.00). This a dark rich wine with a strong fruity bouquet. Lots of jammy fruit on the palate and a long lingering finish. Very smooth with a touch of mocha on the finish. This is everything a Zin should be. Enjoy!
