Four of Our Best Wines for Thanksgiving Dinner

Four of Our Best Wines for Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is upon us and as we prepare to give thanks with friends and family, we have compiled a list of wines to enhance any gathering. These wines will be sure to complement any meal whether it be turkey, ham or prime rib.  From our family to yours, have a very happy Thanksgiving!

 

Aviary Cabernet Sauvignon $40

Napa Valley, California

This decadent Cabernet Sauvignon opens with rich notes of ripe cassis and black cherry, with softer tones of sweet oak and almond. Silky smooth on the palate, these rich flavors are balanced beautifully with a lively acidity. It’s perfect to enjoy now, and will age beautifully for many years to come.

 

Marchiori & Barraud Cabernet Sauvignon, $42

Mendoza, Argentina

Bright, full dark red. Aromas of black cherry, menthol, licorice and herbs, with notes of leaves and mint. Juicy, bright and intense with good freshness that plays off of the dark berry and licorice flavors. Finishes with suave tannins and lingering notes of pepper, licorice and herbs.

 

Bench Pinot Noir $27

Sonoma Coast

Deep, dark ruby in color, this wine offers aromas of ripe fig, pumpkin seed and strawberry coulis. The palate is tightly focused with flavors of bright currant, cola and a hint of pungent, wild mushroom. The mouthfeel is supple yet structured with well integrated tannins that provide the integrity for this charming wine.

 

Shafer Merlot 2014 $65

Napa Valley, California

This was a beautiful vintage for Merlot. From the first pour the wine opens an of abundance enticing aromas and mouth-coating flavors of fresh summer berries, dark plums, and strawberries, fresh herbs and flowers all presented with juicy energy, surrounded by seamlessly textured tannins that will age attractively with cellaring.

Flatter Merlot’s fruit by adding a similar element of fruit to poultry, pork and meat dishes (duck breast with dried cherry-Merlot sauce, roast chicken with cranberry-wild rice stuffing). Caramelized onions, roasted garlic and mushrooms are pleasant companions.
