Wine for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it’s time to decide what to take out of the cellar for the celebration. We’re not big white wine drinkers, so that narrows down the field a wee bit. But which reds to drink? Our favorite Cabs these days are the 2005 Estate Cab Sauv from Gilbert Cellars and 2004 Dussek Cab Sauv from Woodhouse Family Cellars. We also love Woodhouse’s Darighe.

But the choice isn’t that easy — we recently adored 2005 Preface and 2005 Libra from Page Cellars and then there’s the 2005 Estate Cab from Alexandria Nicole Cellars. And what about the robust Syrahs and the smooth red blends offered in Washington state? Our cellar is also stacked with wines from JM Cellars, Airfield Estates, Fall Line, Dunham Cellars, William Church, Windy Point, Desert Wind, Forgeron Cellars, Sparkman Cellars, Mark Ryan and Guardian Cellars.

Help! What are you drinking with Thanksgiving dinner? Please let us know!
