The week of the tastiest holiday of the year has arrived, and that begs the question…what are you supposed to drink with all of that turkey?? Here’s our suggestions:
Malbec: This wine pairs well with stuffing and even a little bit of spice! If your Thanksgiving spread is a little bit unconventional we recommend Terrazas de Los Andes Las Compuertas Single Vineyard Malbec 2014 ($59.99). This Argentinian Malbec is one of the best from this vineyard and it will definitely stand out during your holiday.
Sauvignon Blanc: Perfect for the Turkey Day pre-gamethe latest Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2018 ($30.99) is the light, crisp drink you need with your cheese plate. New Zealand does Sauv’s like no one else and this new vintage is no exception. It’s acidity also makes it great with your veggie sides!
Bordeaux: The Mouton Cadet Reserve Bordeaux 2015 ($14) is an affordable red blend that with notes of spice and mocha. While it’s a no brainer to pair this wine with some beef or lamb, it will also go well with your cranberry sauce! Or even your chocolatey dessert après feast.
Cabernet Sauvignon: No Thanksgiving table is complete without a wine from Napa Valley. The impressive 2015 Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Spring Mountain District ($190) from Newton Vineyard is a bottle you should bring it if you’re looking to impress or share with loved ones. With unique tasting notes of violets, mint, soy sauce and thyme, it pairs best with tender, slow-cooked meats.
Rosé: This holiday always gives us reason to celebrate and express what we’re thankful for. Pop some bubbly, like Champagne Laurent-Perrier’s Cuvée Rosé ($99.99), which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Crisp and fresh Pinot Noir grapes comprise the bottle filled with flavors of strawberry, red currant, baked bread and orange peel. And honestly, what doesn’t go well with champagne?
