Drink / Wine

Tonight’s Hollywood Bowl wines


For tonight’s concert of incidental music from A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Mendelssohn and Orff’s Carmina Burana, I decided to bring along a couple of 2004 wines: a Late Disgorged Brut from Domaine Carneros and a Ridge Lytton Springs.

Both are drinking damn well. No matter how many times I drink “older” Lytton Springs, I am always surprised at how well it holds up. I think few other zins do as well (Turley comes to mind, but that’s about it).

The Domaine Carneros is less of a surprise, but just as enjoyable — crisp, tangy, and nicely balanced.

And the concert? Quite good so far. More in a couple of days.
