Really fast wine

Jeff Gordon, the current Nextel Cup points leader and 4 time Winston Cup champion, has his own signature-label wine and they are going fast. His label includes a 2004 Napa Valley Merlot ($55), 2004 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($75) and a 2005 Carneros Chardonnay ($55). Five additional wines are to be released in the coming months. When asked how he became involved in the wine industry, Gordon stated "Growing up in that area -- Vallejo [Calif.] is close to Napa and Sonoma - we always drove by vineyards when I was a kid, but I didn't get an appreciation for wine until I was in my mid-20s." Buffalo Shipping Post of Napa is the exclusive retailer and the item to get, for racing fans, is the collector's Gift Sets, featuring one bottle of 2005 Jeff Gordon Chardonnay and two genuine Riedel glasses, all in a nice hinged wooden gift box personally signed by Jeff Gordon. Better hurry up before this offer passes you by.
