5 Wines to Bring to Your Next Tailgate

 

5 Wines to Bring to Your Next Tailgate:

 

 
 
 
Tailgating season is upon us! We've got you covered with your favorite Lost Oak wines to pair with popular dishes. Grab your friends, a few bottles, and let the fun begin!

 

 

 

 

 

1. Tempranillo 2019

 

 

Tempranillo is going to be your best friend during the fall for sporting events. With smokey notes and strong tannins, Tempranillo will pair nicely with almost any barbeque and Texas party. 

Tasting Notes:

The Texas terroir is in full force in this Tempranillo. It is bold and full-bodied with a strong earthiness. The flavor is decadently rich with cherries, chocolate, sweet tobacco, and mocha. Strong tannins linger on the palate along with cherry and a hint of smoke.

Food Pairing Notes:

Tacos, steak, barbeque, chocolate
 

Shop Tempranillo

 

 

 

2. Quartet 2018

 

 

 

 

 

Quartet is perfect for a tailgating event. Its flavors are versatile and can pair with most tailgatiing sides, salads, appetizers, and cold snacks. 

Tasting Notes:

Four varietals combine to create a treat for the senses. This wine starts with wonderful aromas of lemon drops and flavors of cactus fruit and soft citrus that all blend together to make the perfect summertime wine.

Food Pairing Notes:

Fruit, cold slaw, salad, appetizers, and more!

Shop Quartet

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Dolce Rouge 

 

 

 

 

Our Dolce Rouge will pair well with your favorite gaming snacks so make sure to have this one close by! 

Tasting Notes: 

It is medium bodied and carries bright berry flavors with just a hint of spice on the back of the palate. A perfect wine for those who don’t like it so dry. 

Food Pairing Notes: 

Pair with deer jerkey, brisket sandwiches, barbaco street tacos, guacamole with fresh tortilla chips, milk chocolate truffles, or make sangria with the Lost Oak Sacred Sangria recipe!

Shop Dolce Rouge 

 

 

 

4. Gewurztraminer 2020

 

 

The Gewurztraminer is a nice classic that you'll want at your next party as it can pair with salty chips, grilled goods, fruit, and more!

Tasting Notes: 

Pronounced “Guh-voorts-trah-mee-ner,” this wine has an inviting slightly honeyed color. Delightful aromas of golden pear, green mango and papaya start this wine off. The first sip coats the mouth with more tropical fruit flavors reminiscent of pineapple. Soft with just the right amount of crispness it has a finish of Persian lime.

Food Pairing Notes: 

Pair with fruit skewers, blackened rainbow trout, banh mi, grilled stuffed jalapenos, cobb salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing, or pineapple upside down cake.

Shop Gewurztraminer 

 

5. Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

 

 

And last but certainly not least, is the classic Cabernet Sauvignon that you can pair with other classics! This is a wine you can pair with some fruit, chili, burgers, and hot dogs.

Tasting Notes:

This Cabernet Sauvignon has an inky ruby color. Aromas of black cherries, currants, and just a hint of liquorish are ever changing with each inhale. Cherries and currants carry over to the palate but with the added flavors of dark chocolate and espresso. It finishes with a lingering mouth feel reminiscent of black tea full of structured tannins.

Food Pairing Notes: 

Pair this wine with sundried tomato bruschetta, burgers, hot dogs, chili, bacon wrapped asparagus, tomahawk steak with potatoes, grilled pizza with Italian sausage, or devil’s food cake.

Shop Cabernet Sauvignon

Recipe: Melon with Honey

source photo: Simply Scratch

Melon with Honey-Lime Dressing

Ingredients: 

  • ½ Cantaloupe Melon
  • ½ Honeydew Melon
  • ½ Personal size Watermelon 
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves - chopped

 

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey

 

Recipe:

 

Use melon ball cutter or just simply cut melon in 2 inch chunks.  Pour dressing over melons, stir and refrigerate.  This can be made ahead of time.  It keeps well for several days.


 

Comments:

    This “Fruit of the season” dessert/salad pairs beautifully with our Orange Muscat.  The secret is getting the melon really ripe.  I put them out on the counter and wait until I can smell them.  I smell them once a day until they are ready. If one gets ready before the other, put it in the refrigerator and wait.  Honeydew generally ripens more slowly than cantaloupe.  Water melon is the exception.  You can usually count on the center to be ripe.  Or, buy slices ready to serve.
