Best wines for the Super Bowl

To me, the best Super Bowl wines are any with which I could see spending a cold, leisurely Sunday afternoon - so usually, husky, bold reds; but perhaps a sparkler or tawny port too.  Here are a few choices, along with links to prices and retailers, and Spirit of Wine ratings in one-to-five stars:

***** Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Australia 
***** Oliverhill Jimmy Section Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Australia
***** Merriam Jones Vineyard Cabernet Franc - Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma CA
***** Earthquake Petite Syrah, CA
****+ Nederburg Pinotage 
****  Starry Night Zinfandel
****  Cat Amongst the Pigeons 
****  Braida Moscato d'Asti
