Happy Thanksgiving

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The Navarro Edelswicker( $12) was a big hit and I used some to deglaze the roasting pan for the gravy. A blend of Gew├╝rztraminer, Riesling and Pinot Gris it has lovely floral aromatics and was quite pleasing with our meal. We went with the J Wilkes 2005 Bien Nacido Pinot Noir Hillside Blend to pair well with the more earthy elements of the meal. This Pinot is one of my favorites and is well balanced and more reminiscent of a french red burgundy than a California Pinot. Our turkey came out great. We used a blend of sage and thyme in butter and worked it under the skin of the turkey. We also basted our turkey with the rest of the blend. We never did get to the EOS Late Harvest Muscato but it is a delicious dessert wine.

We LOVE Navarro Edelzwicker with turkey, or leftovers, or pretty much anything. It's a great bargain, and very tasty. (That bird looks great, by the way).
