NV Pol Roger - Brut Reserve
750ml | SKU 27261 
BH

Toast your friends and family with one of our favorite Champagnes. If the Royal Family celebrated Thanksgiving this is all they would drink! - Joe Kluchinsky
2015 Etude - Pinot Noir Santa Barbara Lyric
750ml | SKU 68427  An amazing wine for the price. This wonderful rich wine has great notes of cherry, red raspberry and fresh strawberry notes with a soft hint of cinnamon and spice, a great value for the host with a large holiday gathering. - Andy Creemer
2016 Cantina Surrau - Vermentino di Gallura DOCG Superiore Sciala
750ml | SKU 73176  Bursting with exotic fruits, lemon, and white peach but balanced with silky body persistent acidity, mineral notes and a hint brineness. When pairing with food the rich texture of the wine leads to a complex finish sometimes giving subtle herbal qualities like sage or rosemary on the finish. - Tim Adams
2016 Zamo - Colli Orientali di Friuli Pinot Grigio Ramato
750ml | SKU 73601  Pinot Grigio vinified in this way is a deep, almost pinkish, onionskin due to a limited time of skin contact in the winemaking process. The nose reveals all of the varietal fruit and floral aromatics mingling with the subtle maturation-derived notes of yeast and crusty bread. The mouthfilling, glycerine-rich palate has warmth and breadth, singing savoury acidity and a hint of tannins. The long-lingering after-aroma evokes an unusual depth and finesse. - Tim Adams
2016 Selbach Oster - Zeltinger Himmelreich Kabinett Halbtrocken
750ml | SKU 73953 
VM

Always one of the best buys in white wine from anywhere. This wine is in the perfect nebula of "not too dry not too fruity" and will pair perfectly with Thanksgiving fare. - Phil Bernstein
2016 Selbach Oster - Zeltinger Schlossberg Spatlese
750ml | SKU 73955 
WA
93
My personal "go to" for Thanksgiving is Mosel Spatlese. I just love the way the green apple moderate sweetness makes even the driest turkey (not that you'd make a dry turkey!) taste pretty darn good. This wine has the nice pop of acidity to pair with all the sides as well. Selbach Oster wines are always a pleasure to drink. - Phil Bernstein
2016 Coquard Loison Fleurot - Bourgogne Rouge
750ml | SKU 74255 
WA
87-89
From one of our favorite new producers. This is bright, fresh Pinot Noir that drinks way above it's price point. - Joe Kluchinsky
2016 Adelsheim - Pinot Gris Willamette Valley
750ml | SKU 74478  A great white for your Thanksgving meal. Crisp notes of peach and pear with a wonderful rich finish. - Andy Creemer
2015 Argatia - Malagouzia Assyrtiko Athiri Macedonia
750ml | SKU 74847  A mineral-driven white blend from northern Greece, with somewhat briny floral aromatics and zesty citrus flavors with hints of wet stone. Beautifully balanced, with a long multi-layered finish. - John Fitter
2017 Liquid Farm - Rose Santa Rita Hills
750ml | SKU 74856  A great rosé - bright, dry, crisp notes of roses, oranges and strawberries, this is a great wine to serve your guests when they arrive. - Andy Creemer
2015 Dog Point - Pinot Noir Marlborough
750ml | SKU 74937 
97
A lush and opulent pinot noir with rich plum and dark stone fruit flavors. Not a lot of wines can show off this kind of power with such finesse. Consistently one of the most impressive New Zealand pinot noirs. - John Fitter
2016 Raen - Pinot Noir Sonoma Home Field
750ml | SKU 75074 
WA
94+
This is wondefully elegant Sonoma pinot noir. This is going to complement any Thanksgiving meal. An amazing pure core of berries with a well structured long finish. This will benefit from a 2 hour decant. - Andy Creemer
2014 Bryn Mawr - Pinot Noir Willamette Valley
750ml | SKU 75392  This is a fantastic pinot noir for the money - loads of cherry and bright cranberry notes with a hint of spice, a lovely wine for your Thanksgiving meal. - Andy Creemer
2014 Jean-Pierre Rietsch - Cremant d'Alsace Extra Brut
750ml | SKU 75655  Taut and racy, with apple and quince aromas, and a crisp salinity on the palate. This is a blend of auxerrois, chardonnay and pinot gris, aged three years sur lie and bottled with zero dosage and no sulfur addition. -John Fitter
2017 Clos Ste. Magdeleine - Cassis Rose
750ml | SKU 75865  One of our most requested and highest quality dry rosés. Perfect as an aperitif or with your entire feast. From the one and only Kermit Lynch. - Joe Kluchinsky
2017 LaPierre & Pacalet - Julienas Collection Rezin Cousins
750ml | SKU 76109  This "ball of fruit" from Bojo superstars Lapierre and Pacalet (who happen to be cousins) is the kind of wine that puts a big smile on your face. Classic gamay with great acidity and low tannins, but still has plenty of backbone. An absolute perfect turkey red. - Phil Bernstein
2017 Walter Scott - Pinot Noir Willamette Valley La Combe Verte
750ml | SKU 76452  Wonderful notes of red fruit, cherries and deep savory forest floor notes. This wine will benefit being open a couple of hours but will pair perfectly with turkey. - Andy Creemer
2016 Foradori - Teroldego Vigneti delle Dolomiti
750ml | SKU 76704  Fresh floral bouquet with beautiful light and dark raspberry and blackberry notes condensed into a medium body with gorgeous fine tannins and balanced acidity, a perfect complement with poultry and game birds. - Tim Adams
2015 Domaine Pfister - Pinot Gris Tradition
750ml | SKU 76819

Fairly ripe and forward, showing classic peach, apricot and melon on the nose. Full-bodied and intense on the palate, but still pretty dry, this is about as crowd-pleasing as they come. - John Fitter
2014 Ox Eye Vineyards - Lemberger Shenandoah Valley
750ml | SKU 76821  A beautiful medium-bodied rendition of the classic Austrian variety, this offers layers of bright black cherry, sumac, cranberry and nutmeg, with plenty of vibrant acidity to cut through the chaos of the Thanksgiving table. - John Fitter
