Take our recommendations below and stock up on some of the wines we like best for Thanksgiving.
Erath Pinot Noir 2012
This vintage gives Erath’s easy-drinking Pinot a bolder presence: Deep jewel tones and complexity. Black cherry, juicy plum and Campari aromas meld with slight meatiness and warm yeastiness. Cherry, cranberry-raspberry and herbal flavors provide gentle sweetness, caressing the palate to a bright finish.
Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay 2012
This Chardonnay has integrated tropical flavors such as pineapple, mango, and papaya with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavors delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak rounds out the long, lingering finish.
14 Hands Cabernet 2012
This Cabernet has aromas of blueberries and black currants with subtle hints of dried herbs and spice. Dark stone fruit flavors are complemented by a touch of cocoa and accentuated by fine, velvety tannins.
La Marca Prosecco
La Marca Prosecco has light and delicate fruit and floral aromatics, relatively low alcohol levels, and a friendly mouthfeel.
Veuve Clicquot Brut
Veuve Clicquot has a strength that is immediately pleasing to the nose while its complexity explodes on the palate. The initial notes of fruit are followed by more discreet aromas of brioche and vanilla when the wine is allowed to age in the bottle.
