Thanksgiving means so much to so many, and getting to that day can be very stressful, with all the different needs to be considered. That is why we have put the Thanksgiving Wine Essential Selection together for you, so you can place one easy order and take the wine concern off your worry list. Here’s what we have for you!
NV Fleuraison Vin Mousseux Blanc de Blancs Brut – Not too dry, not too sweet, but an excellent choice that will make everyone happy. Even if you are not serving sparkling at your Thanksgiving dinner, you are sure to need a bottle or two to take as hostess gifts to any friends you might be visiting over the holidays.
2013 Eisold Smith “Edel” White Blend- The perfect blend of white varietals that will pair splendidly with your starter course and make those who do not enjoy red varietals very happy you did not forget their preferences!
2013 Dusky Goose Chardonnay – With honey and brioche aromatics that are complex yet polished, this is sure to please even the most particular guests. The transition to the palate is seamless and the minerality coats the tongue, providing the perfect stage. The mid palate is driven by the acidity and the wine’s finish is long and bright.
Mad Violets “Mantis” – This wine was crafted with 40% new oak and an indigenous fermentation; it expresses a purely fruitful core with silky, seamless tannins. The nose is laden with layers of dried roses and orange peel with just a hint of anise. The mouth is lush with black and red fruits and a spicy finish of allspice and nutmeg. This wine is classic Oregon Pinot from a terrific vintage.
Gilbert Cellars “The Pilgrim” – What you get from this inspired red blend is a lush fusion of fruit, cherry, berries, and light spice, harmoniously balanced in a soft tannin structure. Just enough oak to keep it interesting but not enough to dominate this beautiful wine that pair perfectly with hearty fall flavors.
2011 Chateau Grillon Sauternes – This lovely Sauternes will make for the perfect finish to your Thanksgiving meal. Paired with whatever sweets are on your table this year, the honey notes of this wine will shine.
