It takes a while to defrost a whole turkey (way longer than you think). So, what to do while you wait? Well, you could work on cleaning up your email or organize your spice rack. Our advice? Shop for the perfect Thanksgiving wines. No need to travel all the way to Paso Wine Country to find the right bottle: simply order online from more than 300 world class wineries. From light and bright to bold and beautiful, you’ll find a Paso Robles Wine sure to delight every member of your family this T-Day. Yes, even the worst complainer of the group!
A crowd-pleasing rosé
Finally, everyone can agree: Beloved by white and red-wine drinkers and light enough to allow subtle turkey flavors to shine, a crowd-pleasing rosé might be the perfect Thanksgiving pairing. Aged in stainless steel, Ecluse Wines’ 2021 Rosé features a festive salmon color, balanced aromas of nectarine and lovely notes of honey and lemon on the finish. Congrats–you’ve just found the secret to family harmony. If only those group texts were this easy to navigate.
A buttery chardonnay
Spread it on: A word of advice? Now is not the time to be introducing bold, structured wines. Instead, reach for something totally approachable for folks young and old. Of course, we could only be talking about a classic chardonnay. Iron Oak’s Lariat Chardonnay is oaky, rich and buttery on the palate. What could be more appealing? Plus, those slathered rolls and mashed potatoes soar to new heights when paired with an equally sumptuous companion. Hey, treat yourself! We aren’t counting calories here until after Thanksgiving.
A celebratory sparking
Is it even the holidays without a few bubbles? We think not! Pop open Paso’s best when you reach for Sextant Wines 2020 Sparkling Brut, a first for the winery. The inaugural sparkling release celebrates the culmination of over a decade of hard work and passion ready to grace your table. It’s time to share this soon-to-be iconic offering with those you love most! Classically made, expect a dry sparkling blend of chardonnay and pinot noir hand-picked for a toast-worthy meal.
A rustic red blend
Herbal remedy: Why do Rhone reds go so well with Thanksgiving dinner? Well, for starters, these lighter red wines tend to be rounded and full of warm, red fruit flavors. Featuring delicious ripe fruit with an earthy-herbal scent, you’ll get whiffs of bay, lavender, rosemary and juniper as you sip. Pair grandma’s stuffing with Kiamie Wines’ 2019 R’Own Style Blend, brimming with rustic elderberry, truffle and new leather charm, and we think you’ll understand exactly what we mean. Cozy in a bottle!
A decadent dessert wine
Sweet tooths, rejoice: Dessert wines are making a comeback! Far from cloying, fresh Paso-crafted offerings are the embodiment of “la dolce vita.” Cass Wines’ Late Harvest Roussanne is a fab example of how to do a sweet styles justice: Aromas of white peach, crushed honeysuckle and orange blossom greet the nose followed by a viscous texture that coats the palate in rich flavors of honeycomb, lemon meringue pie and candied pineapple. Just the right amount of acidity rounds out the experience, landing this wine neck-and-neck with any pie you can throw at it.
