Fact: "Pinot Noir" is an anagram of "Onion Trip!"
Pinot Noir is good for a get-together, nice in the background at dinner, and yet also able to carry an evening by itself. Sounds a lot like a respectable classic rock CD, doesn't it?
Sure, wine is normally thought of as high class and rock-n-roll thought of as, well, slightly less. But today the hardest rockers of yesteryear are gettin' up there, right? And the idea of sitting with a good wine and some memories of concerts gone by- well, there's no shame in THAT.
Here's what we're thinking: put on Quadrophenia and open up the 2009 Pinot. Marvel at how mature you are, and how much work you've put into your life. Remember when you first heard this record over those terrible speakers you bought out of a white van? And now, you've got a sound system worth bragging about. As well as a passable wine collection. Which, incidentally, will be welcoming this lovely mix of silky caramel, dark cherry, strawberry and vanilla with plum on the finish.
See? Being mature isn't so bad. Those punks today WISH they could rock as hard as "Funk #49".
