Matt Schofield & Seghesio Zinfandel

Readers of this blog will know that I love the blues. Every once and a while, a young gun comes along with claims of being the next Stevie Ray Vaughn or Eric Clapton. Well, in my humble opinion, tonight’s guitarist can take his place next to those two giants. Matt Schofield is one of finest blues guitarists to come along in years. He’s rated one of the top ten guitarists of Great Britain and rightfully deserves the accolades. Born in 1977, he’s been in the business since he was 18 and has been immersed in the blues all his life. While some guitarists seek to emulate the greats, Matt has his own powerful style. His music should get you through the Monday blues with a bang and launch you into the week riding the notes of his wailing guitar. Enjoy!

I need a powerful wine to accompany Matt so I recommend Seghesio’s 2007 Sonoma County Zunfandel ($24.00). The wine is sultry and sexy like a slow blues with black cherry and blueberry aromas followed by a palate of raspberry, blueberry, and peppery spice. Seghesio is known for its Zins and one thing I find especially appealing is they aren’t overly oaked. The wine has a silky refined texture, perfect for the smooth blues guitar of Matt Schofield.
