3 + 3 November: Wine + Music
Welcome to 3 + 3 for November in Wine – 3 awesome tracks you need to be listening to right now, with three amazing brews to enjoy them with.
If you’re not yet hip to the electro-soul-folk-interplanetary VOICE that is Moses Sumney, it’s time to GET hip. Despite our best efforts to sum him up here, this young creative force from Ghana by way of LA defies classification and speaks through his prodigious talent. This glittering, sparkling, true-blue track is a glorious expression of that talent.
Zonin1821’s Prosecco is another sparkling gem that speaks from its heart. This is a varietal crafted from the grape that gives it its name, native to the Veneto region of Italy. It’s fresh, dry and festive and adds a layer of bright smiles to any get-together. Up your joy quotient, open a bottle of Zonin1821 Prosecco today.
Aaron Maine has found sophistication. This little 2017 track from his musical project Porches is living proof. Imbued with a simple power and tempered with an honest fragility, its center runs pure and strong.
Washington State’s Columbia Valley is yielding some very interesting wines. The Wahluke Slope, within that valley, brings us Luke and its Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a full-bodied Cab, unpretentious and broad. Berry scent, smoky fruitiness and a spicy zest mark this find. Get into this wine, you’ll be grateful.
The man behind LCD Soundsystem, James Murphy, has always been about integrity, sincerity and the transformative power of music. “Oh Baby” from LCD’s latest release feels like a beautiful vintage polaroid from some lost, late 80s box of memories -- urgent, truthful, genuine and wistful. Realness.
This big-berry beauty carries an honesty all its own. Ripe fig aromas and broad blackberry notes couple with a hint of pepper zest to make this Zin the perfect partner for a night on the grill, a pizza party or simply relaxed sipping in sweats.
