2016 Dream Police, Red Wine, Napa Valley
The Dream Police sparks your brain and salivary glands into action with flavors of ripe black cherries, notes of dark cocoa, juicy figs and even a touch of cola and tobacco. Lagrein, a local hero in northeastern Italy, is the main player in this fresh, aromatic and super alluring blend. It’s a deliciously plummy and dark grape that’s full-bodied, but not too heavy. On the palate, enjoy some stellar tannins, complex textures and an evaporative, clean finish.
The minute Dream Police by Cheap Trick comes on, we can’t help but crank the volume up. We got to thinking about these lyrics, realizing that our own self-doubt is the most real thing that tries to creep in and handcuff our dreams. But we don’t play that way. Nothing stands between us and living our dreams. As a reminder, we got our good friend and talented illustrator, Tavis Coburn, to bring this idea to life with a retro illustration. Tavis' unique style is inspired by 1940s comic book art, the Russian avant-garde movement and prints from the 1950s and 60s.
The dream police, they live inside of my head
The dream police, they come to me in my bed
The dream police, they're coming to arrest me
