Below is a list of wine pairings from our extremely knowledgeable and talented wine manager Natalia. These wines are her top recommendations for the upcoming holiday. Hopefully these will ease your preparation for Thanksgiving, but we encourage you to stop by or call for additional assistance.
2013 VAJRA ROSSO, LANGHE $12.99
Vajra Rosso is an introduction to Piedmont reds. Fruitiness, freshness and a good structure,
combined with great personality. The blend is primarily Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera, with
deft touches of Albarossa, Freisa and Pinot Noir. Subtle earthy undertones surround the fruit
features of the wine and tend to show great with the traditional flavors of turkey and stuffing.
2014 DOMAINE FUSSIACUS, CHARDONNAY, MÂCON CHANTRÉ $16.99
This wine is fresh, rich and opulent melon and exotic fruit nose with nuances of lemon tart and
delicious crisp acidity. Fruit driven, weighty palate of stone fruit, revealing the mineral origins of
its terroir. Unctuous and nicely rounded, finishes with elegance. This well-balanced white is
surrounded by herb and mineral undertones, making it a prime pairing candidate for turkey and
NV BARCINO CAVA BRUT $13.99
Incredible value Cava made exactly the same way as Champagne, with a second fermentation in
the bottle. If you like bright, zesty citrus flavors and the fine bubbles of Champagne this is
perfect for you without breaking the bank. This sparkling will bring both: elegance and
phenomenal food-pairing versatility to virtually any meal, but with Thanksgiving these wines
2015 NOTE BLEUE ROSÉ, CÔTES DE PROVENCE $14.99
Gorgeous pale pink color with soft and shiny reflections. This crisp and precise 2015 has a lovely
mineral freshness with delicate aromas of citrus, red fruits and white flowers. On the palate
white cherry and strawberry flavors follow through to a full body and tangy acidity with plenty
of flavor at the finish. Great thanksgiving pairing, mostly for those not settle on red or white.
2013 DOMAINE SPECHT, RIESLING, VIN D’ALSACE $16.99
This aromatic wine shows concentrated orchard fruit—apple and pear with a strong mineral
backbone. It’s laced with racy acidity and great texture. Excellent choice for dishes that are
spicy, salty or sweet. Riesling’s innate flavors of apple, apricot, honey and its clarifying acidity
give it a significant pairing edge with the likes of sweet potatoes, turkey meat and spice-laden
or herb-filled stuffing, give it a try!
