Brought a bottle of this to James Taylor (along with a few others) to have with a picnic dinner on the lawn at Tanglewood earlier this week. It was the hands down winner with the group. I'm not usually a fan of oaky chards, but this one had so much integrated fruit it was really outstanding. The finish went on and on as well leaving me wishing I brough home more than 2 bottles.

A James Taylor concert? I've seen and heard him on stage at Walnut Creek (outdoor amphitheater) and at a centennial concert in Raleigh. Still listen to his music on automobile trips sometimes.

JT plays his "home " site every other year on the fourth of July. I've been going for a decade. This year he decided to play his off year so we went again. It's a fantastic venue. Everyone set's up on the lawn with a picnic dinner, candles, and wine. He starts to play around 7 and continues through sunset. A more relaxed and groovy night is hard to come by. When the show is on the 4th, they even do a great fireworks display at the end.

Let is know if he is on for '08 and we will try to plan to be there.

Should be on next year (07) IK as this year was an off year fluke. I will let you know when I find out.

PS: If anyone else from the area wants to come, this would make an excellent venue for a small off line. Anyone???

Understand he just earned the title "Grand Wuss" from somebody. Yeah, a mini off line for New Englanders and anybody else would be fun.

Sounds like fun.
