Thanksgiving Wines With a Twist at Cork & Barrel
As Thanksgiving is an American holiday we thought we’d put a twist on the traditional recommendations of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for your big dinner.
Since we all (at some point) . . came from “somewhere else” . . we chose a Chardonnay from Italy and a Pinot Noir from Germany – plus a big Shiraz from Australia!
Amazing expressions of all these grapes but from “somewhere else”.
All three are part of our November Wine Club (which BTW – makes a great holiday gift)! No visa required!
November “If You Insist” Wine Club:
2015 Trefethen Oak Knoll District Cabernet Sauvignon
Fragrant notes of blackberry, bay leaf, coffee, and chocolate. The palate is supported by velvety tannins and features flavors of red cherries and baking spices.
This elegant wine pairs best with fine cuts of beef or venison.
