49ers or Seahawks? Napa or Columbia?

Posted by Ivesreeves, Jan 18, 2014.

Let's have some fun with this weekend's NFC Championship.  Cite your favorite wine from either Napa or Columbia Valley and, by doing so, reveal your choice for this weekend's 49ers - Seahawks game. Ok, I'll start....Bennett Lane Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2006.  49er's by five.

Well, Ives, there's no denying that these are two of the most exciting teams in football.  Happily, for us fans, this weekend, the other two teams playing this weekend are equally exciting.

Mike Januik's Novelty Hill 2009 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is saying that the Seattle Seahawks with their home field advantage will prevail by a field goal.

Emark, though we disagree on the outcome of the game, I wholeheartedly back your choice in wine. Great stuff. Somewhere there's a beer blog hosting a similar thread, but in their case it's the AFC teams and a battle between Coors and Sam Adams.  I'm sticking with wine tomorrow.  Enjoy the games!

My favorite? Can't narrow it down but  I do have a favorite Winemaker from one of those regions and I happen to be going to his house to watch the game today. Taking some pork shoulder that's been smoking overnight.

 

Not sure what will be on tap for libations but I expect lots of craft beer and would not be surprised to see a lineup with some of this in it.

 

Go NINERS!

Mark, this puts a serious dent in our friendship.

Championship Sunday at a glance...

In no particular order. Great wines, beers, food and Bourbon. The Phelps was surprisingly lithe and fruity. The WS was still drinking like a baby. Just Wow!.

Well, Sorry Fellas....I guess my Longshadows Pedestal Merlot jinxed ya!

Although I'm in Victoria BC, it's only 60 nautical miles to Seattle...so no wonder I was behind the Hawks.

Go Hawks!  Here was my choice to get Beast Mode rolling with some power to start the game...

 

Then to celebrate the victory!
