11 Nov Turkey for Turkey
So unless you want to have a half dozen (or more) different bottles open for that Thursday afternoon wine-free-for-all, the best thing to do is to find wines designed to go with a wide array of foods, like Turkish wines. A big, youthful (read: oaky) Cabernet might be the right thing for a porterhouse steak grilled to your specifications, but the nuances of roast turkey and its trimmings are overwhelmed by lots of new oak and the high levels of alcohol that usually accompany it. Generally speaking, Turkish wines produced without excessive oak, and are meant to go with the table, rather than to dominate the table.

So this Thanksgiving … think Turkey for Turkey!
