Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young & Steltzner Claret

Crosby Stills Nash and Young is one of my all-time favorite musical groups. The harmonies they created are unique even today. Drawn from Buffalo Springfield (Stills & Young), the Hollies (Nash) and the Byrds (Crosby), they rose during the Woodstock era full of anti-Vietnam war sentiment with a different twist on traditional fold-type songs. Suite Judy Blue Eyes is probably their most recognizable tune. Their rendition of the Joni Mitchell song, Long Time Gone, hits the heart of the Woodstock emotion. Last but not least, check out Southern Cross, one of their later tunes. Enjoy.

Suite Judy Blue Eyes:

Helplessly hoping:

Wasted on the way:

You don’t have to cry:

Southern Cross:

Gotta have a mello wine for CSNY and I’m going to suggest a Steltzner 2007 Claret ($18.00). It’s aroma is distinctively black cherry with a palate that adds black raspberry, mocha, vanilla, and a nice bit of oak to the mix. It has a long velvety finish from the ripe tannins. This wine is from the Napa region where prices can be considerably out of my $25.00 limit, but this one is one of the best I’ve had. Add in the under $20.00 price tag and it’s a winner. So smooth out your Wednesday hump day with CSNY and a glass of Steltzner Claret. Enjoy!
