Our selections this year:
Saint Vincent Brut Rose NV (New Mexico)
Tasty and affordable, this sparkling rose from New Mexico could not be a better buy. Bright and fun, its jumps out of the glass with notes of tart strawberries, cherries, and flowers. The finish is dry but lush, with the perfect amount of acidity to make it refreshing. The perfect way to kick off a long, indulgent Thanksgiving meal.
Clos Julien Chardonnay 2012 (Central Coast, California)
Clos Julien is a label created to produce fantastic California wines at a fraction of the California price. The fruit is sourced from all over the state from reputable, small estates. This chardonnay is made in the classic California style; a soft silky mouthfeel, a creamy oak finish and filled with ripe, tropical fruits.
Ransom Pinot Gris 2012 (Willamette Valley, Oregon)
Ransom Wine Co. is the creation of Tad Seestedt, a gifted young winemaker and distiller whose love for cooking is part of the inspiration for his food friendly wines. This aromatic white has aromas and flavors of overripe peach and apricot and a crispness that is sure to complement a wide range of foods.
Walnut City Pinot Noir 2011 (Willamette Valley, Oregon)
Founded in 1999 by friends and partners John Gilpin and John Davidson, Walnut City Wineworks aims to create restrained, honest wines from the Willamette Valley. With years of experience out in the vineyard and in the cellar, they create outstanding wines that demonstrate Willamette’s unbound potential. Burgundian in style, this pinot isn’t overwhelmed with new oak, leaving room for the purity and clarity of the fruit to shine through. Silky and elegant with bits of cherry, raspberry and subtle notes of damp earth.
Sobon Estate Hillside Zinfandel 2011 (Amador County, California)
Zinfandel is America’s grape and no Thanksgiving is complete without it. Certified organic, Sobon Estate Zinfandel has dark cherry, blueberry, spice, and cocoa flavors with a nice dash of pepper. Low in tannin, it’s easy to enjoy on its own but marries well with stuffing, whether savory or sweet, and will do wonders with some dark meat drenched in gravy.
Reininger Lot 66 Merlot 2008 (Walla Walla Valley, Washington)
An antidote to overly oaked, too fruity, flabby merlot, this wine is wonderfully aromatic with a delicate herbal quality. It is filled with lovely rich, cherry and plum-like fruit laced with notes of coffee and earth. The finish has fresh fruit and a nice backbone of acid and a soft tannic pull. The extra few years of age really bring this wine together, allowing the secondary notes to shine and the ripe Walla Walla fruit to subtly charm.
