Wednesday, December 17, 2008 this AP article on pressdemocrat.com featured a great quote for Texas wines:
Lettie Teague, executive wine editor for the magazine Food & Wine, said K-J chardonnay seems a good choice for modern times — popular and reasonably priced at around $11 a bottle.
She envisions a bipartisan presidential table graced with blue state reds and red state whites.
“As a New Yorker, I’d like to see some New York wines represented — we were a huge state for him,” she said with a laugh, suggesting a sauvignon blanc or cabernet from the North Fork region or a Finger Lakes Riesling. Other picks: a Washington state merlot, “because I feel they really do that grape well,” a hearty California zinfandel and “to show that he is an all-inclusive sort, I would throw in a viognier from Texas.”
