I have been loving being a born again Detroit Red Wings fan these past few months, and, of course, the red Rhônes that we sample while rooting on our home town heroes are always carefully selected and quite enjoyable. Red Wings fans everywhere were extremely pleased to see the boys wearing the winged wheel on their jerseys qualify for the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs in a must-win situation on the last game of the regular season, qualifying for their 22 consecutive post-season appearance, the longest current streak in the league. Red Wings fans everywhere were also thrilled to see the boys win their first round series against the Anaheim Ducks, in seven hard fought, no-quarter-given games, moving on to tonight’s second round appearance, with a classic matchup against another Original 6 team, the Chicago Blackhawks. Let the fun continue!
In this first of three reports on our selections, I’ll focus on the three wines currently available in Day-twah from a producer that we’ve been fans of for some years now, Domaine Sainte Anne. We actually consumed the regular Côtes-du-Rhône during that playoff clinching regular season finale against the Dallas Stars, while the two Côtes-du-Rhône Villages provided some serious red Rhône mojo for the big overtime win in Game 2, on Anaheim ice.
