Favorite Acoustic Performances &Talbott Pinot Noir

I’ve been out on business for some time and unable to blog. So tonight, I want to review some of my favorite acoustic performances. John Gomes rendition of the Chaka Khan song is amazing and what can I say about the late George Harrison, Eric Roche, and Michael Hedges? Steve Winwood’s version of John Barleycorn has always been a favorite that I used to play in coffee houses back in my college days as was JT’s Something in the Way She moves, always nice to sing to a lady friend. Richard Thompson’s Vincent Black Lightning was the first song of his that I learned and one of these days I’m going to work out my own version of Sting’s Fragile. Hope you enjoy these.

Although we’ve gotten 7 inches of rain in the last four days, at least it’s spring, so I’m breaking out my favorite type of wine, namely Pinot Noir. Tonight I recommend a 2010 Talbott Pinot Noir Kali Hart Monteray ($17.00). The nose if full of strawberry and rhubarb aromas. The taste is smooth with nice cherry and vanilla flavors. Its finish transitions to a bit of blackberry and lingers moderately long. Very nice for welcoming spring indoors out of the rain.
