Wine Finds: Splurge on a pinot noir for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time when a lot of people spend a bit more on a better wine to grace their holiday tables. If you are one of those folks, consider splurging on a pinot noir. Although there really is no single wine that pairs with all the different Thanksgiving flavors, many believe that pinot noir is about as close as you can get.

Wine Finds: Rosé Cava makes a nice addition to Thanksgiving table

Wine Finds: Rosé Cava makes a nice addition to Thanksgiving table

With the holiday season quickly approaching, it’s time to start stocking up on festive wines. Among my favorites is the Spanish sparkling wine known as Cava, which comes from the Denominación de Origen of the same name. Although less expensive than real French Champagne, Cava is made by the same labor intensive méthode Champenoise process in which the wine gets its fine bubbles by going through a second fermentation in its own bottle. At Thanksgiving time, I particularly like Rosé Cava. Because these wines are made from red grapes, they tend to be richer and fruitier than the drier regular brut style. They make for welcoming aperitif wines or beautiful additions to the Thanksgiving table.
