NFL Star Beats Actors & Snoop Dogg in Celebrity Wine Battle

He may be one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history, but Charles Woodson’s wine was playing offense in my latest celebrity wine competition, the “Celebrity War of the Red Wines”.

Woodson’s Intercept Pinot Noir had all the right moves with 32% of the total votes, while the Washington State red blend from actor Kyle MacLachlan, best known for his roles in Twin Peaks and Sex in the City, scored a strong 21% of the votes. Snoop Dogg’s 19 Crimes “Cal Red” avoided the dog house by retaining a place in the middle of the pack (16%)

With 296 households logged in via Zoom, I instructed the group on how to evaluate red wine and then presented the six contenders. Participants voted through Zoom’s online polling system, with the following results for favorite wine:

1] Intercept Pinot Noir 2017 (Charles Woodson) (32%) winner

2] Pursued by Bear “Bear Cub” Red Blend 2016 (Kyle MacLachlan) (21%)

3] 19 Crimes Snoop Cali Red 2019 (Snoop Dogg) (16%)

4] 7 Cellars “The Farm” Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2018 (John Elway) (11%)

6] tie) Wade Cellars Three By Wade Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (Dwayne Wade) (10%)

6] tie) Vanderpump Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (Lisa Vanderpump) (10%)

The results for best label/packaging are as follows:

1] Pursued by Bear “Bear Cub” Red Blend 2016 (Kyle MacLachlan) (35%) winner

2] tie) Intercept Pinot Noir 2017 (Charles Woodson) (24%)

2] tie) 19 Crimes Snoop Cali Red 2019 (Snoop Dogg) (24%)

4] Wade Cellars Three By Wade Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (Dwayne Wade) (11%)

5] 7 Cellars “The Farm” Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2018 (John Elway) (4%)

6] Vanderpump Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (Lisa Vanderpump) (2%)

The next celebrity wine competition happens December 9th, the Celebrity War of the Luxury Red Wines, with luxury-level bottles from Ayesha Curry, Kurt Russell, Josh Groban, Sting, John Legend, and Yao Ming.
