The intense dark ruby red color of Robert Hall’s Cabernet Sauvignon is reflective of this full-bodied, flavorful wine. The core of black currant and hints of cedar and spice along with cocoa aromas echoed by rich persistent flavors of plush ripe fruit, dark chocolate and anise are all supported by balanced, rich, velvety tannins. It’s the perfect pairing with Mat’s playlist, as well as anything off the BBQ, steaks, braised short ribs and lamb chops.

Originally hailing from Eugene, OR, multi-instrument musician Mat Kearney helped a friend move to Nashville, TN in the early aughts and loved it so much that he elected to stay permanently. Now a longtime fixture on the Music City scene, Kearney has released seven genre-blending albums and toured with everyone from John Mayer to Sheryl Crow.
Kearney’s latest record, entitled January Flower, is a collection of honest, stripped-down songs that bring Kearney back to his singer/songwriter roots — armed with only his voice and an acoustic guitar, Kearney wrote the majority of the album during a power outage at an isolated house in California’s Joshua Tree. “You couldn’t see anything from the house but the desert and it was so beautiful.” says Kearney. “Stripping it back to me and a guitar and some friends reminded me of how I started and that was the genesis of this record.”
I like to play this mix when I’m taking my time cooking a nice dinner or hanging out on my front porch watching the day turn to night.
Lately a good glass of wine and a playlist that makes me feel relaxed, at peace, and even inspired is pretty much as good as it gets.Mat Kearney
