Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Thanksgiving Wine

Omigod! It's almost thanksgiving! What wine to serve with the turkey? Not to worry. Almost anything goes. Big rich reds such as Syrah might not be that great and why waste a great Bordeaux on Turkey. But light reds such as Beaujolais-Villages and Pinot Noir work. Try Erath Pinot Noir. IMO, turkey is a white wine dish. Riesling and Gewurz are perfect if you like floral wines. Fruity Chardonnay such as Clos Du Bois goes well. Try L'Ecole Semillon or their Chenin Blanc based "Walla Voila." How I wish I could get a hold of some Jasnieres, the dry Chenin Blanc based white from the Loire Valley. When in doubt, just grab a bottle of sparkling wine such as Ch. Ste Michelle, Freixenet, Mumm's Napa Brut or Chandon.
