Whether or not you're a football fan, the Super Bowl is the ultimate snack day, and no snack is complete without a properly paired beverage. This year we're breaking away from the standard beer + football combo and instead selecting game day wines that are crisp, bright, and fruity (for both whites and reds) to compliment the snacks that go with spectating.
2015 Tangent "Stone Egg" Albarino
Fermented in concrete eggs (that look like a giant football), this wine has tons of tropical fruit to hold up to those spicy snacks.
2015 Banshee Sonoma Pinot Noir
When your team is winning you can scream like a banshee! Bright red fruits will cool the heat from those jalapeños on your nachos.
2014 Green and Red Napa Zinfandel
Whether your rooting for green and white or blue and gold, the Green and Red Zin will keep the game flowing. Big and rich with lots of jammy fruit, it will warm you up while you are eating chili.
2014 Tradition by Amizetta
If your looking for that power fullback to break through the line, this Napa Cabernet blend is a sure bet for a first down. Hidden in the "underdog" price point, it will be a returning player to your glass.
And when it's time to break out the Champagne to celebrate victory what could be better than a glass of Pol Roger N/V Brut. A great Champagne at a winning price.
