Antonio Forcione & Estancia Cabernet

He’s been called the “Jimi Hendrix” of acoustic guitar. Antonio Forcione is definitely an incredible talent. His music ranges from world to jazz to pop to tapping. Check out the duet of he and Felix Pastorius and his version of “Heard It through the Grapevine is one of the best ever. Also, quite the innovator as you’ll see in his four-handed rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “I Wish.”

Live Tapping:

I Wish (Four handed playing):

Heard It Through the Grapevine:

And while you’re listening to Antonio, try a bottle of Estancia Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon (2006). This is a very balanced Cabernet with hints of cherry, red currants, vanilla and spice on the nose. Deep, dark red color with a palate of black cherries, blackberry, balanced tannins, and a trace of oak. Nice long finish. I ordered it with dinner (I’m traveling) and liked it so much, I had a second glass as my dessert. Great for lingering over a good book. In stores, it’s about $15.00 and a great buy. Enjoy!
