Slow & Low

Slow-&-Low

A 2013 Slow Press Cabernet Sauvignon & the 1977 release “Low” by David Bowie

The description on this wine bottle states that it is “Rich, Smooth & Dark” and I would whole heartedly agree that this is a great description of the wine and the vinyl we picked for today’s pairing.

The Slower the press, the better the wine. Oak barrel aged and the oak flavors ring through in this delicious Paso Robles Cab Sav. If you’re into woody cabs then this is well worth picking up a few bottles. It is utterly delicious!

This particular release by Bowie is often identified as a Brian Eno production but he was really only a contributor on side B of this collection of works. The album itself was produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti. Let’s not let this ruin the famed Bowie/Eno Berlin trilogy since Eno still had a pretty big hand in at least half of the album. It is still one of my favorite Bowie records.

Typically a saying that goes well with bbq, but seems to be quite fitting for this particular pairing “Slow & Low”

Cheers!
