The One and Only Wine You Need This Thanksgiving

 


According to a YouGov poll, forty-one percent of Americans enjoy wine with Thanksgiving dinner. It's no wonder we spend so much time planning our drink menus. Turkey Day wines have been discussed on Snooth at length over the past ten years. Tastes have evolved to include more than just the mainstays. Traditions have been shattered, and most meals are a patchwork of wines and flavors from beginning to end. This leaves ample opportunity to serve multiple selections that suit a variety of palates. In fact, one bottle of wine per guest is a good rule of thumb. But what if you had to choose just one wine to serve with your Thanksgiving meal? There would be no sparkling wine for a toast to gratitude with your dear friends. You couldn't follow up with a few whites and a couple of reds. And there would be no Port to send your uncle to sleep. Yes, you would serve a single wine throughout the entire meal. It's a daunting task, but the web's best wine writers are up for the challenge. Read on to learn about their one and only Thanksgiving wines
Gundlach Bundschu Gewurtztraminer

Choosing one Thanksgiving wine feels like choosing just one side for the turkey. The wide range of flavors lends itself to a variety of wine. To compliment the meal, I often lean towards blends, specifically Rhône. Sometimes Oregon wines, Pinot Noir, Gris, or Blanc. However this year, I am going for a sentimental favorite. This year, I would choose Gundlach Bundschu Gewurtztraminer. Not just for it's smart and playful marketing or it's ability to make your guests swoon, but because this year it is so important to continue supporting wineries in Napa and Sonoma. Gun Bun does their Gewurtz in a dry style, with vibrant fruit and acidity. While I have not tasted this vintage, it often has tropical and stone fruits, citrus and floral mid-palate, finishing with rich, nutty spice. It is a wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with turkey and stuffing. As reports of damage at Rhinefarm circulated, my heart sank. It is there that I became enamored with wine. It is there that I began writing. The Bundschu family has navigated and survived the great quake, prohibition, and now the fires of 2017. So this year, I will toast them with gratitude for their spirit, ingenuity, and resilience, thankful for Rhinefarm and all it represents.

Kalin Cellars Cuvée DD Pinot Noir

We were the only wine writers in a group of foodies at Emeril Lagasse's Delmonico in New Orleans when assistant sommelier John Hanvy approached us, conspiratorially, with a bottle of Pinot Noir. it was 2009 and I was a skeptic, as most Pinot Noir I tasted were cherry bombs with a side of dried leaves. This was not. Burgundian, stern, yet soft flavors of dried strawberry, cola and a bit of leather, the Kalin Cellars Cuvée DD Sonoma County 1998 was their current release. It took me another 6 months to get on the buying list of this quirky California winery. They don't have a fancy website, but restaurants and wine lovers know their name. They don't cater to famous wine writers, but release the vintage when they, alone, think it's ready. For the last seven years both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay have graced our Thanksgiving table. If I had to choose just one of those, it would be the Cuvee DD Pinot Noir. First released in April 2010, the '99 Cuvée DD Sonoma is still their current release.

Ladera Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Choosing one single wine for any celebration is mission impossible for me. I always like a variety of the wines at the table, to allow people drink what they want. Nevertheless, let’s do this. My strong preference for Thanksgiving is to go with all American wines. And when I thought about this one single wine to chose, the answer was not what I expected, but I will go with it. I’m choosing a Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Let’s detail further. Let’s go to Howell Mountain appellation. How about Ladera Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon? And let’s now be absolutely precise. How about 2005 Ladera Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon? 2005 was one of the great vintages in Napa Valley. The wines are ready to drink now (they still will be for another 20 years). Mountain fruit offers the combination of complexity, balanced power and finesse - what else you can ask for? Bring on the turkey. And make it smoked this year. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Sartori di Verona’s Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG “Corte Brà” 2010

Since Thanksgiving is a special occasion where family and/or friends come together to enjoy a long meal, I prefer to serve a special wine to savor that might be of interest to different types of wine lovers. And so, I will go with an old school wine that is now taking a new approach: 2010 Sartori di Verona’s Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG “Corte Brà”. Amarone is often mistakenly thought of as a traditional wine that is too sweet, overripe and heavy for today’s taste, since part of the process includes drying the grapes. Well, there are many types of Amarone… yes, the alcohol content of this wine is 15.5% abv but it is dry, fresh and the alcohol is perfectly balanced. The 2010 “Corte Brà” is one of Sartori's top-shelf wines and a strict selection of grapes that show the new style of this great winemaking area… fresh black cherry flavors with complex notes of tar and dried sage, that has a good structure with an elegant finish. Amarone producers are starting to use more of their local Corvina variety, a grape recognized as their noblest variety, which adds acidity and bright fruit flavors. Amarone’s evolution to a higher quality fine wine has been noted by their elevated status to DOCG, in December of 2009. This wine is a chance for older and younger wine drinkers to come together and enjoy the idea that when traditions are respected, yet open to some progress, the results are ideal for everyone involved.

Domaine Labruyère’s Coeur de Terroirs Moulin-à-Vent 2014

My Thanksgiving Day pick hails from the Beaujolais region of France. The Gamay grape is King in Beaujolais, and Domaine Labruyère—one of the oldest wine producers in Moulin-à-Vent appellation (est. 1850)—makes delicious wines from the variety. Moulin-à-Vent is one of ten ‘crus’ (think of them as villages), and the crus carry the highest quality of wines produced in Beaujolais; with each cru having its own personality. Moulin-à-Vent is known for producing some of the most powerful, long-lived wines of all crus. Find Domaine Labruyère’s 2014 Coeur de Terroirs Moulin-à-Vent. Be sure to swirl this one vigorously, and sniff deeply—the aromas are simply wonderful. The flavors include pretty red berries, juicy plum, and floral hints suggestive of violets. In the mouth, it shows some richness, and is full yet streamlined—with ripe fruit notes propped up by a firm spine of acidity. There’s good depth and concentration, too. This wine is a pleasure to sip. And like most Beaujolais, the wine’s bright personality allows it to pair well with a wide range of foods—especially traditional Turkey Day fare. You should be able to find it for $25 or less. Here's wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving. Please let us know how you enjoyed the wine, or whatever selection you were able to find from the region.

Hudson-Chatham Winery Chelois, Casscles Vineyards

I am going to go out on a limb here and guess that many of the contributors and readers have never had the wine that I would call my one and only. However, as I reflected over the course of the last five years of Thanksgiving celebrations in preparation for this contribution, I could only recall this wine from my celebration two years ago as truly a standout. At the time, I fondly called it "The One" among many wines my friends and I drank over the course of that evening, wines from California, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington. The wine we could not stop tasting and talking about was Hudson-Chatham Winery's Chelois, Casscles Vineyards, from the Hudson River Region of upstate New York. For those who are not familiar with Chelois, it is an Albert Seibel hybrid, Seibel 10878, which is a cross of Seibel 5163 and 5593. Its parentage is about 50% Vitis vinifera, including grape varieties such as Aramon, Alicante Bouschet, Black Hamburg, Dattier, Grenache, and Piquepoul. What makes this wine my one and only is its lively acidity, subtle tannins, and lower alcohol. Characterized by rustic, red berry flavors and a soft, textured mouthfeel, thanks to aging in neutral, French oak barrels, this wine is the perfect accompaniment to rich, traditional, holiday fare, such as turkey, pork, casseroles, and stuffing.

Foggy Ridge Cider Final Call

Given the diverse range of foods on the Thanksgiving table — salty ham, boring and bland turkey, sweet cranberry stuff, vinegar collards, delicious oysters — selecting just ‘one bottle’ can be tricky. However, our ‘one and only’ bottle for Thanksgiving dinner this year is an easy choice — Foggy Ridge Cider Final Call. This refreshing, bright and delicious cider will be our one and only bottle for Thanksgiving as much for the story as for the quality and versatility. Grown by Diane Flynt, Final Call is the culmination of over two decades cultivating traditional cider apples and setting the standard of American fine ciders. Flynt, who is widely considered an American fine cider pioneer and rockstar, will be returning to the orchard full-time so Final Call is the final cider to bear the name Foggy Ridge Cider. Final Call is a field blend of Harrison, Newtown Pippin and Hewe’s Crab apples grown in the Foggy Ridge estate-orchard in the Blue Ridge Mountains; the apples were blended in the orchard and pressed together. The freshness and bright acidity will elevate many foods on the Thanksgiving table; the story of Diane Flynt and her contribution to the cider world will elevate conversations around the Thanksgiving table. For these reasons, Foggy Ridge Final Call is our ‘one and only’ bottle this Thanksgiving!

Channing Daughters Ramato 2014

When choosing a single wine for the Thanksgiving table a number of things need to be considered. First and foremost a plethora of traditional dishes exist for this holiday and most everyone adds to those with their personal family or regional traditions. Pairing wine to so many diverse foods requires serious consideration, if you want to get it right. Often the tastes of those dining are even more far afield than the cuisine, so you need a wine that will make everyone happy. The 2014 Ramato from Channing Daughters located on the South Fork of long Island checks all of the boxes. Ramato is made entirely of hand harvested Pinot Grigio sourced at their Estate in Bridgehampton and one additional vineyard located on the North Fork. It was fermented on the skins using native yeasts for 16 days. This gives it a vibrant orange color that shimmers beautifully in the glass. After Fermentation it spent 18 months in older Slovenian and French oak. The fermentation and barrel aging provide texture and body that allows it to standup to more substantial foods. But it retains tremendous freshness and has terrific, racy acid. Stone fruit aromas punctuate the intoxicating nose. Flavors of white peach, apricot, and bits of brewed tea dominate. The finish here is long, lush, and impressive featuring bits of mesquite honey, baked apple and a host of spices. Most importantly the 2014 Ramato is simply delicious. The fact that it shares qualities of both white and red wines makes it a natural partner for the bevy of foods you’re likely to have on your Thanksgiving table as well as the myriad of taste buds. As a bonus it’s also likely that a fair percentage of your guests don’t have much experience with skin fermented whites; often referred to as Orange Wines. So in addition to the other benefits you can introduce your friends to an unfamiliar category.

Bollinger RD Extra Brut 2002

If I could have just one bottle or type of wine at my Thanksgiving and I am glad I can have many types and choices. But if I could only have one type of wine it would be Extra Brut Champagne. And I know this seems like an odd choice--sounds like a New Year's choice. I do think for me Champagne is versatile and popular thought is that it is only a celebratory wine. I lean heavily on Blanc de Blancs and perhaps could enjoy this everyday. But for Thanksgiving I want to lean on Extra Brut with a composition of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The richness and finesse of the wines partner well with Thanksgiving fare—the fuller and a bit more body add elegance. For me I always want dry, dry, dry---I more often than not seek Extra Brut. For some paletes are accustomed to a Brut style and the dosage does speak volumes. Regardless of occasion food or no food extra brut is a delight. With food a delight especially for those who want a bit more sweetness to balance their food experience. Here is the specific wine I would pick this Thanksgiving: Bollinger RD Extra Brut 2002 – 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay—while I would like this through the entire meal—the turkey or main course portion is when I would serve this wine. So if you don’t want to spend $300 a bottle you can find a bottle of Extra Brut and if you make it a non-vintage an even lower price point. Reach out to your wine merchant for a lower price point Champagne.

iOTA Cellars Pinot Noir 2006

My one and only bottle for Thanksgiving is iOTA Cellars Pinot Noir.  If I can only have one bottle, it better be a magnum! First, it's a delicious Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from Eola-Amity Hills, and after all, American wine should be the first choice for the Thanksgiving table. iOTA Cellars was created and has matured in the hands of our close friends and ex-next door neighbors. A bottle from their first commercial vintage in 2006 was my vinous "Aha" moment. Not that I knew what I was doing, but on opening the bottle, I decided that maybe I wanted to dive deeper into this wine thing after all.

Amarone from Valpolicella

Thanksgiving, it's all about time shared with family and friends and of course delicious food and wine. With such variety of dishes on the table how do you choose the best wine to pair? I go with the ever popular “drink what you like”. I always have a white and a red to enjoy that day and although I'm not always true to a particular white grape I do always enjoy a bottle of Amarone from the Valpolicella wine region of the Veneto in northeastern Italy. I typically hang on to these bottles for special occasions and the holidays are the perfect time to pick one out. Typically a blend of the corvina, rondinella and molinara grapes, I enjoy the complexity and depth of these wines starting with rich aromatics and full body full of dark fruit and raisin-like notes due to the appassimento, or drying process, of the grapes. Definitely a wine that needs decanting. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Gloria Ferrer Brut Rosé

I'm not a "one wine" guy at Thanksgiving. Much to my wife's dismay, I like to serve up to six wine variations for a large crowd of people, and pour a slew of things that are fun, unusual, and delightful pairings. But I've been asked this question many times, and my answer has evolved over time. Last year I began to emphasize that as much as I love all the world's wines, for this one, uniquely American holiday, I believe we should pour only American wines for Thanksgiving. And so my answer has two parts, so here goes: 1) Brut Rosé. 2) From California. My one wine choice is Gloria Ferrer Brut Rose. This wine provides bubbles, and gorgeous red fruit with great acidity, which allows for elegant palate cleansing and the fruit profile I usually want from pinot noir or nebbiolo  wines for a savory dinner wine pairing. The flavor palate on the Brut Rosé is simply delightful and is ideal for this holiday meal: rich strawberry, followed by a blend of raspberry & cherry, with lovely baking yeast, and a glorious mouthfeel with moderately sized bubbles. Have one taste and you'll realize you could just sit and sip this all day long. But serve with your dinner and find how it elevates food so well! Aligning with the cranberry we love on Thanksgiving, brut rosé is the perfect foil to your turkey or ham, the stuffing and gravy, the starches and greens. It's also easy on the wallet: a quick search had seven stores near me selling it between $20-25/bottle, and it's readily available in retail wine shops across the USA. Sitting on the porch of Gloria Ferrer recently and enjoying this wine while looking across their fields to stunning and disarming views, both gorgeous and devastating from the fall colors, shifting into nearby recent wildfire damage right across the road, on another set of vineyards. This wine can remind you how thankful we should all be.

Hazelfern Cellars Winter Rosé 2016

Raised in a family where tradition runs deep, my passion for cooking and entertaining was instilled in me at a very young age. Thanksgiving was, and still is, the holiday I look forward to most of all. Vintage vinyls of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin spin softly in the background while integrated aromas of fall spices, fresh herbs, baked apple pie and mouthwatering roasted turkey fill the air - keeping my childhood memories alive and in motion.  If I had to choose just one wine to have with Thanksgiving dinner, I'd choose a dry Rosé - a style of wine that typically pairs well with just about anything. But not any Rosé will do for this special occasion feast - Hazelfern Cellars 2016 Winter Rosé is unmatched and the absolute perfect wine for Thanksgiving. Produced specifically to pair with heartier, cold-weather meals, this 78% Pinot Noir, 19% Chardonnay and 3% Tempranillo Rosé is barrel-aged for 12 months in used French oak.  It's chock full of black cherry, raspberry and pomegranate fruit; along with, subtle savory herbal characteristics of sage and rosemary and a hint of earth, sea salt and hazelnuts. Vibrant acidity plays a crucial role in making this a phenomenal wine to pair with a myriad of flavors; especially with roasted turkey, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, roasted butternut squash, cranberries and so much more. With Hazelfern Cellars 2016 Winter Rosé, choosing "My One & Only Thanksgiving Wine" was easy breezy.

LVVR Sparkling Cellars Rosé

Naming a "one and only" bottle for a Thanksgiving table is tough, as the range of flavors, textures, and need to drink from the early stages of the meal to the end are tailor made for a variety of wines. That being said, to me the one wine that can handle this Sisyphean chore is sparkling wine, specifically a sparkling rosé. Search out a lesser known sparkler to make it more special and to make sure your guests haven't had it before. My suggestion is LVVR Sparkling Cellars Rosé, young, fresh and tasting of the locally sourced Lodi fruit - classic sparkler flavors with yeastiness, floral notes, and then berries sprinkled throughout. Cheers!

Macari Vineyards "Early Wine" Chardonnay 2017

A traditional Thanksgiving dinner is as diverse as it gets. You have somewhat neutral turkey, stuffing — with or without sausage or oysters or whatever depending on your traditions — buttery mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts or green beans or sweet potatoes or roasted squash, oh and cranberry sauce. That’s a myriad of textures and flavors — before we even consider the preparation variants on each. How can any single wine —  no matter how amazingly food-friendly or delicious — make each of these taste better, while also tasting better itself? It can’t. That's why I suggest just drinking wines that you like. Drink good wine. But if I had to pick one, which is the point of this story, I'll be drinking a lot of Macari Vineyards 2017 "Early Wine" Chardonnay. In essence, this is a chardonnay nouveau. It was just released and it checks all of the boxes -- it's a celebration of the just-past harvest season, offers bright green apple and juicy citrus flavors, has crackling acidity and, most important, will appeal to everyone at my Thanksgiving table. I don't like wines that I need to think too much about at Thanksgiving, but they have to be delicious. This is just that.

Jordan Cuvée by Champagne AR Lenoble

Thanksgiving is the wine and food pairing superbowl.  With everything from strange, but traditional sides (Jell-o Salad anyone?) that can be savory, sweet or both, to glossy, fatty, butter infused foods, how can you possibly pick a single wine?  Actually, it's almost like rigging the game: choose Champagne.  Its acidity, bubbles and celebratory character make it an easy pair with Cheese Balls, salads and desserts as easily as turkey with gravy.  Just be sure to source enough bottles to carry you through your meal.  This Spring, Jordan Winery teamed up with Champagne producer AR LeNoble to bring to the US market a great value delicious Champagne.  According to the Jordan site: "The blend is 30% Grand Cru Chardonnay from Chouilly, 35% premier cru Pinot Noir from Bisseuil and 35% Pinot Meunier from Damery. The Jordan Cuvée is a special selection of the AR Lenoble Brut Intense that was packaged exclusively for Jordan. Twenty-five percent of the blend is reserve wines, and the base wine is from vintage 2012. This wine spent four years aging on the lees before it was released and has a dosage of 5g/l. AR Lenoble Jordan Cuvée Brut NV retails for $49 and will only be sold direct from the winery." A pale golden color with tight, active bubbles, the wine is gifted with wonderful acidity, freshness, subtle autolytic notes, hints of green apple and honey. Affordable and delicious real Champagne will enable you to take home the food and wine pairing trophy.

Cabernet Franc

One wine above all! Is that even possible? Thanksgiving is around the corner and the wine you place on the table is an important decision. Is it even possible to choose one wine to pair with an entire meal? To me, wine parallels my mood so what is my favorite wine one day, may be replaced by another, depending on what happened in my life that day. When charged with deciding on a “One and Only Wine” for Thanksgiving, my mind immediately wandered to several aspects and three wines came to mind. An Albariño because it's light-body, high acidity, salinity and dry citrus flavors scream out for white meat and pairs well with green vegetables. Zinfandel entered the spectrum of thought, because it is considered an All American grape. Introduced to California during the Gold Rush somewhere between 1852 and 1857 and currently the third-leading wine grape variety in California, it would be a perfect selection for the All American holiday. But in the end, I had to choose Cabernet Franc. The father of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenere is one of the most versatile grapes you can pour. For me, Thanksgiving does not involve turkey and Cabernet Franc truly shines with vegetarian dishes. Fall flavors such as rosemary, sage and thyme all pair well with the tart flavors of Cabernet Franc while it's lighter tannic structure and medium body is designed to highlight the lighter meats such as turkey. Cabernet Franc is an all around meal pleaser. Thanksgiving is not about a single dish, rather about a variety of foods and being with family and friends. Cabernet Franc’s profile allows it to be the one wine that embraces the diversity of food and palates.

Toil Oregon Pinot Noir

Our perfect bottle of wine for Thanksgiving is Toil Oregon Pinot Noir, which is gorgeous and glorious — not often words we use to describe Pinot Noir.  Big and complex, Toil's earthy and savory notes, plus the spices and long, juicy finish, make it perfect to pair with turkey, stuffing and a number of different side dishes. Happy Thanksgiving!

Schramsberg Mirabelle Brut Rosé

If I had to choose only one wine for Thanksgiving it would a rosé sparkling wine! A sparkling rosé combines two of the most food friendly wines – sparkling wine and rosé to create a synergy that is a must-have for your Thanksgiving meal. We all know that sparkling wine elevates the dining experience. A sparkling rosé not only makes a great aperitif, it’s bold enough to pair along your dinner. Its red fruit character also makes a great complement to the cranberry flavors often found at the Thanksgiving table and its effervescence acts as a palate cleanser to rich gravies and meats. Since Thanksgiving is an American holiday, I prefer an American wine. Furthermore, given the recent wild fires in northern California, I recommend the Schramsberg Mirabelle Brut Rosé. Schramsberg has been making sparkling wine in the Napa Valley for over 50 years! It’s a multi-vintage blend (that includes a surprisingly high 25% aged reserve wine) of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from cool climate vineyards in Carneros, Anderson Valley, Marin County and the Sonoma Coast areas of Northern California. It’s an expressive well-balanced and zesty wine with a strawberry cream, raspberry, watermelon, and baked pear character with hints of citrus and spiced vanilla.  It’s a wine your guests will give thank for and you’ll feel good about helping those affected by the devastating wild fires. And at an SRP of $30 it won’t break the bank! Happy Thanksgiving! And may you and your loved ones continue to be blessed!

Champagne Pierre Peters, Rosé d'Albane

The one wine that I would serve on my Thanksgiving table would have to be champagne. I personally love all things Pierre Peters, but I’d go with the Rosé d’Albane Champagne, which would stand up to the richness of the multitudes of food on the table while keeping the celebration that a bubbly brings. For me, the Champagne Pierre Peters Rosé d'Albane, is bursting with raspberry, currant, strawberry with floral notes like rose with baked bread and mineral notes. Rodolphe Péters of Champagne Pierre Péters is one of the most highly respected growers in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. This cuvee was first introduced in 2007. For me, it’s the perfect celebration and way to give thanks for the wonderful people sitting around the table.

Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Cuvée Millésime Brut 2002

My one and only bottle would be a 2002 Pierre Gimonnet & Fils Cuvée Millésime Brut from Champagne, France. It’s a delicious, hand-crafted gem, with an innate ability to pull you in and not let go. Notes of apple and toast linger from start to finish, with an underlying mineral finesse that dances in the glass. In one word, it is extraordinary!  And it will be the easiest wine to pair with food—it’s almost fool proof! From oysters to roasted turkey, and brussel sprouts to pecan pie, you’ll rock your guests’ expectations.

Grenache

With so many friends. family, and flavorful foods spanning the two leaf Thanksgiing table, selecting the right wine can be difficult.  When one views a table loaded with turkey, mashed potatoes, rich flavorful yams, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and often tastes and spices of brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, butter, and perhaps even a little bacon, you need that right glass to make you do the happy dance. The choice, Grenache. Grenache is the second most planted grape on the planet, and offers red fruits, licorice, pepper, spice, and often a lush texture. Grenache brings the rare ability to pair with almost any of these foods quite well, and will not tire ones palate. Another great aspect of Grenache, is it's ability to appease so many, and more bang for your buck than many other options. Those drinking it at their Thanksgiving table, will indeed, be thankful for Grenache.

    Because of the wide range of Thanksgiving dishes, I would advise going with rose. And since it is a festive occasion, throw in bubbles! So, a brut rose whould be my go-to for at the table, prefaced by a regular dry sparkler to get everyone in the spirit, and followed by couch time.
