Sips of the Week
This week we are gearing up for tomorrow’s SuperBowl with Baltimore’s best wings from Kisling’s Tavern. We’ve got great wine and beer pairings for you whether you are rooting for the Seahawks, Patriots or just in it for the halftime! We’ll be joined in studio by Brett Hollander host of Sportsline who will share his predictions for the game. Listen Here:
Battle of the Beers Red Hook KCCO Black Lager, Seattle, WA Brewer’s Notes: KCCO Black Lager is a toasty lager with notes of chocolate and coffee. Unlike a heavy stout or porter, it’s amazingly light, crisp, and sessionable. Debunks the misconception that all dark beers are heavy, filling, and very high in alcohol. VS. Samuel Adams Rebel IPA, Boston MA Brewer’s Notes: http://www.samueladams.com/craft-beers/rebel-ipa# Great Wines from WA Lone Birch Riesling, Yakima Valley, WA $13.99 Winemaker’s Notes: COLOR: Light Straw, NOSE: A delicate perfumed floral bouquet. PALATE: Light bodied with flavors of white peach and citrus fruit PEAK DRINKING: Now through 2016. VARIETAL COMPOSITION: 100% Riesling Duck Pond Cabernet, Columbia Valley, WA $13.99 Winemaker’s Notes: Our 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon grapes achieved optimum ripeness at a lower sugar level, resulting in a balanced, food friendly wine. The nose opens with oaky vanilla notes; flavors of anise and dark berries complement the soft, velvety tannins. Enjoy the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon on its own or pair with foods such as tomato-based pastas, barbecued meats, and hearty comfort foods.
