Lana Del Rey - Ride

This is more of a movie than just a music video at 10 minutes long with narration. This particular song/video connected with me on several levels. This one may affect you.

 

Music and Wine Pairing: I was torn about which wine to pair with this music. At first I thought a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc was the wine that would work. After some reflection, I decided on a Washington red wine. Then I worried about staining that lovely white dress she wore in the video. So I'm recommending the 2010 Poet's Leap Riesling Columbia Valley. This wine reminded me of polished steel. It was crisp, bright with wonderful minerality. It was not austere, it was tantalizing. Wow! Enjoy.

"Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, better known by her stage name Lana Del Rey, is an American singer-songwriter. Her second studio album, Born to Die, was released in January 2012. The album sold over 2.8 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of 2012. Musically, she draws influence from what she deems to be the masters of each genre, including Elvis, Janis Joplin, Eminem, and Britney Spears, as well as from poetry and film noir. Del Rey has endorsed clothing line H&M, serving as the model for their Fall and Winter 2012 collection. In 2012, Del Rey became the face of the Jaguar F-Type luxury automobile." Learn more about Lana Del Rey.
