Jets Uncorked

Enjoy the Jets? How about wine?

Well now you can enjoy both at the same time.

The team announced Wednesday it has started taking advance orders for its new, limited release commemorative wine, called Jets Uncorked. The 2008 cabernet sauvignon was created to help the team celebrate the opening of the New Meadowlands Stadium.

“We didn’t want to simply slap our logo on a wine,” said Matt Higgins, the team’s executive vice president for business operations. “We wanted to make one from scratch.”

The wine was made solely for the Jets, and will be available for $27.99 on the team’s website. DiGiulio said about 8,000 cases were made, and several Manhattan restaurants, such as Nobu, will also carry it.

“We wanted a 100 percent cabernet, that seemed appropriate for football,” Higgins said. “And we wanted it to be so good even a Pats fan would drink it after tearing off the label.”

The label itself is black and understated with Jets Uncorked in white and gray block letters, above a drawing of an actual play run by the Jets in a game.

“We’re not saying what the play is,” Higgins said. “We’ll leave it to our fans to figure it out.”

It seems as if teams will do anything now to make a few extra bucks. What’s next? Jets toilet paper?
