California Guitar Trio & Medalla Real Carmenere

Tonight, I'm featuring an acoustic guitar trio, namely the California Guitar Trio. But first, the wine. Start with a 2007 Medalla Real Carmenere, D.O. Colchagua Valley. It’s a Chilean red, deep and dark in color, with a bouquet of dark fruit and spice. Stong notes of blackberry, currents, and black cherries with a bit of vanilla and oak on the palate. Concentrated, long finish. It’s unfiltered so you may want to decant it…or not. Excellent red. I’m really growing attached to Chilean reds.

The California Guitar Trio are three guys who’ve played together for at least fourteen years and studied guitar together even longer, having met and studied with Robert Fripp in England. Their musical repertoire ranges from classical pieces like Toccata in fugue in D minor by Bach to Walk Don’t Run by the Ventures. Quite diverse. For you equipment nuts, they favor Breedlove guitars. Take a break from football, open the wine, and enjoy them.

I've seen CGT live twice at a local bar called The Thirsty Ear. Phenomenal musicians, all three. I have a CD of the second show, they recorded it (it was Paul's birthday) and burned copies that night.

The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly is a standard, and the CD I have also has an excellent version of Pink Floy'd Echoes.

Happy New Year!
