Early T-Day Wine Picks!

At our annual Thanksgiving and Woodbury Commons Spree weekend, we previewed a few wines that we will certainly request on our TGiving dinner table this year… Here was the outcome (of the wines, not the shopping that would be far too long of a post!)…

Ruinart Champagne Brut Blanc de Blanc: To start off our lovely tradition and meal we toasted  our pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving with a special aperitif from the oldest established Champagne house in the world – Ruinart.  With extreme bubbles and hints of a minerals and fruit, we got our hunger going for what was to be a feast of a meal (as it always is)!

Mark West Pinot Noir: His motto is true to its taste – “Pinot For the People” and should be a staple not only on the Thanksgiving Day table but in your wine cabinet as well!  It’s oaky notes and rich spice with hints of vanilla and lots of fruity/cherry flavors will be superb with your Turkey and gravy dinner!  Outstanding to drink throughout the entire feast

Bogle Vineyards Pinot Noir 2009: This is also a nice alternative to a Mark West with lots of spice and strawberry flavors and is amazingly smooth!  I would suggest pairing this with the darker meat of the turkey!  Delish!

Spellbound Cabernet Sauvingon 2009: This was supposed to be a fun Halloween wine (we skipped on Halloween this year so figured I had to bring something ‘spooky’) but it turned into a pleasant Thanksgiving wine that can be enjoyed after dinner when you are taking a break between dinner and dessert! Start enjoying right before  dessert,  take it with you into dessert and enjoy with some pumpkin pie, blueberry pie and dark chocolate!
