Hello everyone! I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving! It’s going to be a great week of fun food and hopefully some tasty leftovers. Here are a few more wine recommendations for the big day. I like to put port wine in the gravy to give it more flavor then save the rest of the bottle for after dinner. The Kopke port is perfect for my purposes and the price is really terrific. If you haven’t tried it yet it is a must have wine. The Acrobat Pinot Noir 2012 was just on Wine Spectator Magazine’s Top 100! A great value in Oregon Pinot Noir for sure. The Estancia Pinot Grigio is a real crowd pleaser with soft peach and pear flavors.Enjoy!

Deep garnet red color with cherry cola, strawberry, raspberry, dark chocolate, saddle leather, dried tobacco leaf, vanilla on the nose. Red cherry, muddled raspberry, mushroom, cocoa, strawberry, smoked oak, turned earth with velvety tannins and fresh acidity create a well-balanced wine.

 


 

Kopke Ruby Port N/V

Founded by a German family of the same name in 1638, Kopke is likely the oldest Port house in existence today. Aged in oak casks before bottling, this is a young, fruity port with a vibrant, sweet feel. This crowd-pleaser features plum and bright cherry flavors. The palate is smooth and balanced. Use some in your gravy preparation and drink the rest with dessert!

 


Estancia Pinot Grigio 2013

The wine shows lively notes of jasmine blossoms, lemongrass, lychee, and lime twist. Deliciously crisp white peach and Asian pear flavors lead to a subtle lemon zest finish. It has a pale straw color, with a slightly green tint.
