Tempting Tailgate Wines – It’s Time!

We popped into H-E-B Montrose Market for a visit with Wine Manager Jamie Shamburger. The topic — tailgate wines! Check out our three picks for your next viewing party, all under $20! Almost time for Kickoff!


Jolie Follie Sauvignon Blanc


Light, crispy and fruity. It comes in a 1 Liter bottle (as opposed to the usual 750ml), so you get a couple extra glasses for your penny! Jolie Follie is French for “Crazy Beautiful”….;)


Les Dauphins Côtes du Rhône Réserve Rouge


Great for pairing with smoked or grilled proteins. You’ll taste the ‘gameyness’ in this ruby red blend of Grenache/Syrah/Mouvèdre with flavors of plum, dark cherry, plus a hint of black pepper.


The Arsonist Red Blend


Jamie’s favorite of the bunch. A bold red blend of Petit Verdot/Malbec/Cabernet from Matchbook Wines in California. A rich, lusicous red with dark fruit flavors, plus notes of chocolate and cigar smoke. This begs for a steak!
