What Wines Do I Drink on Thanksgiving and with Ten Top Texas Favorites?

I always like to have both red and white wines and also a sweet wine on the Thanksgiving table. The reason for this selection is that we often serve three meats (turkey, ham and beef brisket) along with sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and a host of desserts. Since I spend a lot of time in the supermarket buying my turkey and all the fixin’s, I want to make sure that my Texas wine selections are readily available at this same location. This year, the wines that I am going with are Llano Estacado ( Cellar Select Cabernet Sauvignon (Mont Sec Vineyards) to pair with the brisket, Becker Vineyards ( Viognier for the turkey, and Messina Hof ( Muscat Canelli to serve with the ham. We may also serve a wine with or after dessert, if so, my selection will be Haak Vineyard Madeira Blanc du Bois.

Ten more pairings at:

Torbreck Juveniles (more powerful wine)

Cloudline Pinot Noir (Dont know if it will stand up to the brisket)

Penfolds Bin 389 Shiraz/Cabernet

those are just some suggestions for red.

Whites, I am not very good with whites, but.

Gewertztraminer (out of Alsace if possible)

Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc

Sweet Wine...try yourself a port...nothing will put you to sleep like port and turkey.

My wife would love you with Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc on the TG Day table. It is her all time fave. Not from Texas, but, I can handle that.
