“She says “If I leave before you, darling
Don’t you waste me in the ground”
I lay smiling like our sleeping children
One of us will die inside these arms
Eyes wide open, naked as we came
One will spread our ashes round the yard”

Dos Fincas Fez – Let Me in the Sound

U2 – No Line on the Horizon 180g Vinyl

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
