How are the Wines Picked?
Tasting Panels made up of Mens Health Editors and readers have the hard job of tasting lots of wine. It’s a blind tasting where they know the varietal but not the winery or price point. They say yes or no. You only get the overwhelming “YES” votes!
Dry Creek Valley, California
Dry Creek Valley. The Federalist Dueling Pistols, a lively blend of Zinfandel and Syrah. Aromas of dark fruits of blackberry and black cherry with black pepper and spice round out the subtle tannins of this red blend.Mendoza, Argentina
The Lote 44 Malbec come from a special lot selection in their high-altitude vineyards in the Uco Valley which sit 1,100 meters above sea level. These vineyards have been producing wines in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza for over 100 years.
Stags Leap District, California
The 2011 Cabernet shows cherry, cassis as well as whispers of sage, floral and wet gravel. The wine shows a tannin backbone that is reminiscent of Bordeaux reds. Another great Cab from this Top Stags Leap District Winery.Colchagua Valley, Chile
The terroir of Chile's Colchagua Valley is well-suited for Cabernet Sauvignon, and this elegant and complex expression would be an ideal pairing for juicy steaks or roast pork.
Napa Valley, California
Markham's Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard provide near perfect growing conditions for this Cabernet. The dark chocolate and berry jam are punctuated with graham cracker toast and hints of menthol will flesh out in the glass.Napa Valley, California
Lot #12. This Napa Valley Lot #12 Merlot is well balanced, showing its terroir as the aromas and flavor profile unfold. Red cherry and plum show through, accented by mocha and slight herbal notes with a finish that lingers.
The Flor de Campo Pinot Noir is garnet with a ruby hue and is busting with bright red fruits like raspberry and bing cherry.
The Player. The Mike Ditka 2012 “The Player” Pinot Grigio is richly textured, has a dense mid-palate and a long finish. Pear, melon, and orange blossom round out this crisp and refreshing wine.
Sta. Rita Hills, California
Sta. Rita Hills. This hand-harvested, barrel fermented Chardonnay is rich and full-bodied with notes of lemon peel, apricot, and toasted hazelnuts and a very pleasing minerality. A Bronze Medal Winner in the San Francisco Chronicle's 2014 Wine Competition and a wonderful complement to seafood, poultry and especially mushroom dishes.
Give a winning gift with these three fantastic wines, a Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from football legend, inspirational coach and steakhouse owner, Mike Ditka.
