Texas vs. New York - The Wine Smackdown

So Texas got cute when they challenged New York wines to a taste-off. You see, the Dallas Cowboys football team had just gotten their asses handed to them by the New York Giants on Monday Night Football, and the Texans weren't gonna let that slide. Texas has a growing wine industry, so what better way to put it on the map than to outshine the upstart NY wines, who've gotten a bit of National press recently.
Eleven wines from each state were lined up, football team style, and tasted by a panel of judges from each state. It turned out as lopsided for New York as the football game was for Dallas. Eight Texas wines were chosen as winners, as only three New York wines came out ahead; a Cab Franc, an ice wine, and a Riesling.
Why don't we turn to baseball, where the San Francisco Giants are playing the Texas Rangers in the World Series, and have a taste off? California wine vs. Texas wine, anybody?
