Wine of the Week: Super Bowl Wines

In honor of Super Bowl Sunday this weekend, we're continuing to bring you the latest and greatest in Super Bowl-ready wine. Odd Pair has featured Buffalo wings with red wine and nachos with white. Today, Wine of the Week has found two easygoing red wines to pair with just about anything you put on your Super Bowl Sunday table. Scoot the beer over; it's time to bring out the wine for the festivities.

Our personal favorite, the McManis Petite Sirah 2008, is not only delicious, but cheap at only $9.99 a bottle. This is a true guy's wine, pairing great with burgers or bratwurst. The deep-purple California red is smooth and dense, with a black fruit flavor. The 2007 vintage was an award winner at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo last year. Plus, you can spend the money you save to buy more wine and food.

Our second football wine is the Printhie Shiraz Viognier 2005. Although pricier at about $17 a bottle, this Australian red is light and approachable with a sweeter, more sugary flavor. Printhie Wines does make a true Shiraz, but the Viognier blend adds softness to the wine, making it a better pair for Super Bowl munchies. Try it with barbecue or potato chips. You won't be disappointed.
