THANKSGIVING IS MY FAVORITE HOLIDAY, SHARED WITH FAMILY AND GREAT FRIENDS, YEAR AFTER YEAR. EVERYONE ALWAYS ASKS WHICH WINE MAY I BRING?
The richness of the Thanksgiving feast goes well with a few wines, but not all. The high fat and salt content of the traditional feast pairs well with low alcohol, low-tannin, high acid wines. The acid is needed to cut through the fat and low alcohol is preferred so as to not overpower the most important items on the table, the food. Low-tannic wines allow the flavors of the food to burst through without being overpowered by a big, bold cabernet sauvignon. Save that varietal for the steaks.
