A Girl and a Dragon in a Stellar Motel

Girl-&-Dragon-in-a-Stellar-Motel

A 2014 Girl & Dragon Malbec from Mendoza Argentina
& Mike Doughty “Stellar Motel” also from 2014

It was a truly crazy night. There was a girl and a dragon and we were all in a Stellar Motel……. it’s concepts like this that I would imagine are why Mike no longer partakes of the wine but hopefully he can appreciate how this story might have ended happily. lol

Girl & Dragon Malbec has the slogan on the bottle of “Be Fearless” and I would say it makes a great slogan for Mikes’ music as well. If you’re not familiar with his work you owe it to yourself to check it out. It makes for the perfect soundtrack for parties as this pairing initially described.

This is a very nice Argentinian Malbec as many of them are. It took quite some time for it to truly open up. I mean literally it needed to breathe for about an hour before it truly revealed itself. A bit of patience and persistence yielded a really nice Malbec.

Here’s to unleashing your inner dragon!

A shadow slips over the land, as the day turns to night.
Glittering stars turn on, one by one; the dragon has taken flight.
Down below, a girl awakes. Her heart beating; his wings beating.
He searched the world for her. And now they soar as one

Dos Fincas Fez – Let Me in the Sound

a
DOS FINCAS CABERNET / MALBEC – BLEND 2010 from Argentina

The use of two separate vineyards in Argentina is a traditional practice to
safeguard against the threat of hail. For the Basso family, it also allows them
to make a more interesting blend by combining the attributes of two distinct
microclimates. The dark, powerful fruit from their vineyard in San Carlos,
matched with the softer, more nuanced fruit from their vineyard in Tunuyan makes
for a memorable wine.

No Line on the Horizon is the twelfth studio album by rock band U2. Released on 27 February 2009.
Fez (Being Born) Possibly one of the coolest U2 songs ever!

“Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound”

Maiden flight!
