I’ve recently discovered a few new wines that I’m loving and wanted to share in case you’re looking to try something new to serve at Thanksigiving. Similar to my tendency to funnel through the sames 5-6 recipes every week, I often will buy the same wines over and over again. Not that there is anything wrong with that but I have recently gotten out of my comfort zone (Chardonnay) to discover some wines I love.
Gen5 Cabernet Sauvignon ($12-14)
“…offers black currant fruit and licorice with hints of toasted oak… it has a full mouth feel, good balance, round tannins, and a persistent finish.” It’s sooo smooth and and delish!
Beringer Knights Valley Cab ($25 ish)
“The 2013 Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of ripe black fruit, mocha, dried herbs and licorice. Opulent but structured, this versatile wine has supple blue and black fruit notes accented by dark chocolate, roasted coffee and a silky, lingering finish.”
Rombauer Chardonnay ($19-$21)
“Carneros, Napa, CA- Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay is a rich wine with layers of tropical fruit, peaches and pears. The fruit opens up into creamy textures of apples and pears that glide across the palate. Hints of citrus and light oak tones highlight the wine’s lingering finish.” This is definitely on the oaky buttery end of the spectrum.
