Cody Ross, one of the heroes of the World Champion San Francisco Giants, was dining last night at a famous SF restaurant with a wine friend.  It turns out that Cody and his wife are HUGE  fans of the Right Bank in Bordeaux!  Even better, Cody was drinking Palazzo Napa Valley Red 2006 and was completely enthralled!  Blown away!  Of course, Palazzo kind of resembles the right bank, in that it is a Merlot based blend…with Cab Sauv and Cab Franc.  Cool climate Carneros.  mmm mmm yummy.   So, to all you suckers who were lemming-ing [yikes] off the Merlot-cliff, come back home…we’ve missed you.

FEAR THE BEARD, NOT MERLOT.

Hot Dogs?  Well, charcoal or gas grill?  cause if it’s charcoal, there’s the smoky element that totally rocks…condiments?  mustard throws this a whole different direction.  I’m going the juicy route…grenache, stainless steel…how about you?

Heck.  Just do beer.  Southern Tier 2x.

Dang, that’s a tough one…what nerd juice would you recommend?  I actually have a producer in New Jersey who does a wine called “Winterspice”…might not be sweet enough, but pretty close.
