The wine: Kiona Vineyards Columbia Valley Merlot 2010
Nora says: If you’re still on the wine train, good for you: go for a mild and mellow Merlot with enough structure to stand up to that triple-decker sandwich. It’s the perfect transition into tomorrow morning’s Bloody Mary.
The beer: Stillwater Classique
Zach says: If you’re immune to tryptophan and are up late partying with your cousins from Florida, your best bet by far is this incredibly palatable canned beer from one of the country’s best brewers.
