Posted on November 19, 2012

Puzzling over Thanksgiving wine picks? Here’s three easy-drinking, turkey (and stuffing)-friendly wines sure to please your holiday crowd.

 

Fess Parker 2009 Santa Barbara Viognier

This crisp, fun white teems with refreshing melony, peachy, pineappley flavors. A subtle kiss of oak and butter contribute to its lovely, lingering finish.

 

Michael Pozzan 2010 Russian River Chardonnay

Lush and tropical, this barrel-fermented Chardonnay offers captivating aromas of guava, passion fruit and mango. A complex, multi-layered flavor profile includes ripe pear and apple, with enticing notes of honeysuckle and caramel.

 

Edna Valley Vineyard “Paragon” 2009 Pinot Noir

I was delighted with this delicate, light-bodied red wine, which showcases perfumey, engaging flavors of red raspberry, pomegranate and red cherry, enlivened by a vivacious cinnamon/clove background and a shy hint of oak.
