If there is one thing I know, other than the philosophy of God Springsteen, it is the gorgeous language that is LATIN. And so, it was during a whistful evening spent listening to THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND, the Boss' cover of the historic Woody Guthrie tune, that I had an epiphany! A song about our communal land demands a wine that honors such a resource. Thanks to my mastery of the language, I was able to quickly identify this BEAUTIFUL cabernet from Terra Valentine. Terra, of course, is latin for Earth (which is covered with land), and it was deep in this bottle of rich and toasty cabernet that I found myself lost among the textured layers of plum, black cherry, and even subtle licorice. This wine is simply delicious! The perfectly spicy finish lasted well through Bruce's extended harmony, and like many of his concerts, the wine simply left me wanting MUCH MORE! Thank god I was able to identify the latin TERRA, for without such a skill, I surely would have been left all alone down the dark THUNDER ROAD!
