Tailgating Wines

What to drink for the big game

Smoked Ribs

Now we’re talking. Ribs and tailgating go together like Jerry Rice and Joe Montana! The deep, complex flavors of the soy, sherry and honey in this sauce scream for something equally big, and assertive, but relatively simple. A gut reaction might be to reach for the Zinfandel here, but I think you’ll need something that can really grind it out. I’m liking the idea of something with a bit more acidity and it’s got Petite Sirah written all over it. Big, spiced blueberry fruit sounds like the perfect play to call here. Touchdown!

Try: 2008 Pedroncelli Petite Sirah
