Anti-depressant music & Mas de Libian Cotes du Rhone Villages “Khayyam”

Statistically speaking, this past week was the most depressing week of the year. We’re just a month into winter, the holidays are past, the bills are here, and it’s a long way to summer. So, to fight off those blues, I thought I’d take a break from strictly guitar music and give you some stuff you can dance to. Don Henley and Kenny Loggins kick it off and should get you into some dirty dancing. And if that doesn’t get you out of a funk, at least switch to the funk sounds of Kool and the Gang. Take it to the streets with Michael MacDonald to find sweet freedom and just remember, when the blues get you down, just roll with it.

Got a fabulous, but hard to find wine for tonight. It’s a 2009 Mas de Libian Cotes du Rhone Villages “Khayyam.” I purchased it through WineAccess for about $18.00 a bottle. It’s predominantly Old-vine Grenache with a dash of Mourvedre and Syrah thrown in for good measure. Dark ruby color with an exotic bouquet of blackberry, cherry, and chocolate. This is a dense concentrated wine with creamy dark plum, blackberry, and chocolate, supple tannins and a spicy long finish. Stephen Tanzer gave it a 91 and it’s a great accompaniment to the anti-depressant music listed above. Cheer up & enjoy!
