Gareth Pearson & Clos Pegase Merlot

Tonight I’m featuring a spectacular young fingerstyle guitarist, Gareth Pearson. Gareth is an acoustic guitarist and composer from Cwmbran, South Wales UK. He’s toured and performed with Andy Mckee, and John Renbourn, both of whom have been reviewed here. Tommy Emmanuel calls him the Welsh Tornado. In addition to a whole bunch of amazing guitar numbers, I included two of his arrangements of Michael Jackson songs in honor of the anniversary of MJ’s death. Hope you like him.

While you’re enjoying Gareth, open a bottle of Clos Pegase Merlot Carneros Napa Valley Mitsuko’s Vineyard 2001 ($25). It’s garnet hue with a fuchsia rim and a nose full of blackberry and blackcurrant, with elements of black and red cherry, spice, licorice, vanilla, and a hint of chocolate. The palate follows with the same elements, sweet and lush, with vibrancy, elegance and great length. Paired with the guitar playing of Gareth Pearson, it’s a “can’t miss” combination. Enjoy!
