A 2013 Urlo Italian Red Blend &
the 1979 Joy Division release “Unknown Pleasures”
ur-lo \ur lo\ n. 1: A scream 2: A sudden vocal outburst 3: A blare of emotion 4: A means of making oneself heard. –
Given the above definition it seemed an appropriate pairing. Raw, energetic, passionate, dark, and haunting. Unknown Pleasures washes over you like a cathartic scream from a tormented soul. The wine on the other hand is a bit more tame but still has a bold oak enhanced flavor that strikes a well balanced chord in this varietal featuring Syrah 25%, Cabernet 25%, Merlot 25%, Sangiovese 15%, Alicante 5%, Petit Verdot 5%.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween weekend everyone! Scream!
