Ever feel like a sandwich? Wait! Don't run to the kitchen and make a sandwich. The question is literal not figurative. Do you sometimes imagine you're a ham and cheddar and being taken for granted? Or maybe you're a hot dog that is overloaded with all the fixings. You want to yell, "Hey, my bun can only hold so much before everything starts spilling over!"
Occasionally I am a roast beef sandwich. Not just any roast beef sandwich but The Beef Martini© from Wright's Gourmet. I like the idea that I exude mouthfuls of crispy bacon, roast beef and garlicky spread. What I like best is being paired with the Conn Creek 2008 Napa Valley Anthology. This is an amazing blend of cabernet sauvignon with some malbec, merlot, petite verdot and cabernet franc sourced from all the best vineyards in Napa Valley. Just like the sandwich, the combination of flavors makes for an outstanding taste experience that can't be found any place else.
Sometimes we all get into that New York state of mind. For those days, one can only be The Skyscraper sandwich from Lucky Dill. What's screams The Big Apple more than two pieces of rye bread holding a mountain of steamed corned beef? Of course New Yorkers have that air of sophistication that calls for a pairing with the Halter Ranch Vineyard 2011 Côtes de Paso Blanc. This wine has a tinge of creaminess to it with hints of peach flavor both of which help wash down the tender beef and the dense bread. This one will definitely make you say "I'll have what she's having."
