Can’t keep all the Republican candidates straight?
Want an easy way to remember who is who in this crowded field? We thought we would have fun tagging them with wine varietals based on their personality and views so here goes (even though some abstain from alcohol).
Mitt Romney. Definitely an expensive Napa Valley Cabernet. With his well-coiffed hair and those movie star looks, we bet he has great legs too.
Ron Paul. He’s quirky and determined to change the world as we know it so he’s a Pinot Noir from California and not Burgundian in style.
Rick Santorum. Conservative values is his mantra so we’ve tagged him as a traditional buttery oaky Chardonnay that’s not great with food.
Newt Gingrich is determined to convince us that his quick slide from the lead is not his fault so we’re thinking he’s a Syrah. Completely misunderstood and a hard sell.
Michelle Bachmann is a Petite Sirah. She’ll be hard to find in today’s primary results just like this wine is hard to find on most wine lists or shelves.
Rick Perry. This kick ass Texan is a spicy high alcohol Zinfandel. Just when you thought he was gaining some momentum he started to fade away.
John Huntsman. He didn’t make it to Iowa and we haven’t seen a lot of him lately so in spite of his sophisticated background and amateur piano playing we think he’s a Riesling. Crisp and dry.
