Music of the Generations & Pazo Senorans Albarino

Tonight I thought I’d present a review of classic generational songs. From my generation, the Woodstock generation, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young said it best. But I would be remiss if I didn’t cover the laid back chemical music of the Grateful Dead and pioneering improvisational rock of Cream. Next came the glam rockers with some excellent guitarists like Van Halen and Slash as well as the hard rockers AC/DC and Angus Young.

My son’s generational anthem was Nivana’s Teen Spirit, but while Kurt Cobain may have penned the anthem, I’ve included Eric Roche’s version as he’s a better guitarist. Moving into the 90’s and early 2000’s, we get to Red Hot Chili Peppers and Joe Satriani. Lastly, I’ve chosen a couple of up-and-coming young guns who I admire and believe have promising careers ahead of them. Enjoy the memories.

Come Home:

While I was in Europe recently, I enjoyed a 2009 Pazo Senorans Albarino Rias Biaxas ($20.00), which I think will pair nicely with the music of the ages. This Spanish wine is a pale gold color with light green highlights. Its nose is full of peaches, apricots, and a touch of apples. The palate was clean and fresh, with pear, melon, lemon, and grapefruit flavors and acidity reminiscent of good Riesling. All in all, it’s a beautiful wine and great for reminiscing about tunes of the past. Enjoy!
