Thanksgiving Wines To Savor and Share!

What to drink with the big bird and all the fixin’s?  If you’d like to think about that a bit, check out our new blog post, Thanksgiving Paring Made Easy for five fool-proof strategies or just click here to see some of our favorites for Thanksgiving 2017.  But if you’d like to keep things easy and foolproof, then we suggest Steininger Grüner Veltliner Grand Grü 2016 and Brandborg Pinot Noir Benchlands 2014.  Grand Grü has been a lead Turkey Day recommendation here for years, and the 2016 marries great richness with a zesty finish and is still just $19.98/ea by the six-pack.  Brandborg’s 2014 is stellar value (from $16.98!) from just south of Willamette Valley, with gorgeous fruit and a just right kiss of savory oak spice.  Both are open to try all week and mix/match for best six-bottle savings.  Come and try them – you’ll be thankful you did!

 

Luxury Champagne at a Bargain Price

In the past decade, we simply have not tasted a Champagne with this much luxurious quality at such a bargain price.  Six years on the lees, layers of flavor, all from $34.98.

Chateauneuf du Pape for Thanksgiving and Beyond!

It's great to "go big" on Thanksgiving, and Jean Royer's 2015 CdP reds give you plenty of big flavor and texture with a surprising elegance, too.  Check 'em out for this Thanksgiving and years to come!

Classic 97 and 95 Point Corliss Cabernets

Rose Dieu Plan de Dieu

Rarely seen outside of Washington State, these stunning 2012 Cabernets demand your attention - and, to be frank, a bit of time in cellar.  Both are stunners with Philippe Melka's touch in tannin management and texture and will shine for decades.
