Sonny Landreth & Yalumba Barossa Patchwork Shiraz

Sonny Landreth is a soulful and exceptional slide guitarist. He’s one of the best at playing single notes, fretting chords and chord fragments behind the slide. Landreth’s right-hand technique ain’t bad either as he taps, slaps, and picks the strings, using all of the fingers on his right hand.

Sonny’s been one of my favorites for decades and amassed a large following among his guitar peers. Notably Eric Clapton said Landreth is "probably the most underestimated musician on the planet and also probably one of the most advanced, and it puts me to shame.” Enjoy!

And with a hard-hitting guitarist like Sonny Landreth, let’s do a 2007 Yalumba Barossa Patchwork Shiraz from the Barossa Valley region of Australia. Dark red in color with an aroma of mixed cherry fruit, plums, and spice flavors. It’s a full bodied Shiraz with softly textured cherry, vanilla, cinnamon, and a touch of brown sugar on the palate. Complex, long finish with moderate tannins. Avery nice wine at $18.00. This wine plus some soulful slide by Sonny Landreth should get you through Monday.
