Thanksgiving Day Wine Suggestions 

From Wine Educator : Gary Spadafore

$10 - $15 Reds

Trivento Malbec
Nice fairly intense red from Argentina, similar to Cabernet/Merlot

Natura Carmenere or Cabernet
Made with organic grapes from Chile - simple but well made

Pietro Rinaldi Dolcetto d'Alba
Juicy, fruity wine from northwest Italy

Matua Pinot Noir
New Zealand - Great with the many flavors of T-Day

Kenwood Zinfandel Old Vines, Lodi
Another Turkey day favorite

$15-$30 Whites

Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc
This one started all the fuss about New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Dutton-Goldfield Chardonnay
Great Chardonnay, a bit restrained, not overyly oaky.

Mer Soleil Chardonnay
Big, classic California Chardonnay - butter and oak

$15 - $30 Reds

Valpolicella Ripasso
Fab with turkey and the trimmings - from northeast Italy

Meiomi Pinot Noir
A luscious, fruity Pinot Noir, my current favorite!!

Frog's Leap Zinfandel
Organic grapes, great wine

Bogle Vineyards Phantom
A red blend, great flavors, fairly priced

Beringer Alluvium Red Blend
Big, bold flavors without the chalky bitterness of some.

Casa Lapostolle Carmenere "Cuvee Alexandre"
Big, yummy wine from Chile

Dessert Wines

Rosenblum Desiree
Great with chocolate

Moscato d'Alba
Almost any label from Italy - great with light, fruity desserts
