What to drink with Monday Night Football: Zaca Mesa 2005 Viognier

I had to watch my team lose tonight. Donovan and the Eagles just haven't seemed to get it together yet.. The packers and now the redskins.... The biggest cheers tonight were for Reno Mahe and that's because he managed to receive punts from the Redskins.

At least the Zaca Mesa 2005 Viognier was up to the task. I'd highly recommend this wine with a cream sauced dish or perhaps Pad thai. The pinapple and mango fruit notes also would contrast nicely with salty items, like nacho chips and football.

Its very crisp and has a plenty of minerality. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks. The time in the neutral oak gives it a wonderful rounded mouthfeel. Highly enjoyable food wine. Eagles not as enjoyable today.
