Thanksgiving is always a treat around here, obviously. Being sequestered inside this great grocery store of ours, we are always plotting what wine to go with what meal. So Thanksgiving tends to be our Christmas, Birthday and all other gustatory holidays rolled up into one delicious dish. Our experts have hunkered down to the table to pull out some of our latest favorites.
2014 Classic Gewurtztraminer
A classic Gewurztraminer from Alsace. Very floral on the nose. Light and textured palette featuring hints of peach and tropical fruits. Slight petrol and lanolin help balance out this beauty!
90 Points – Wine Enthusiast
Txomin Etxaniz Getaria
This offers edgy white fruit aromas and round, citrus and green apple flavors with almost no spritz. It’s plump on the finish, with acid-driven length.
88 Points ~ Wine Enthusiast
2016 Fleurie Les Garants
A beautifully soft red wine from Domaine du Vissoux’s Pierre Chermette wines. 100% Gamay. Bright cherry and red berry fruit with hints of rose petals and light spices.
92 Points ~ Jeb Dunnuck
2016 Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc
Rhone Valley, France
A veritable greatest hits of white Rhone varietals – Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, Clairette and more – are represented in this delectable blend with white flowers, Georgia peaches and fresh pineapple and tropical fruits.
