Alyssa's Thanksgiving 3-Pack
If your family is anything like mine, when you arrive at your destination, no matter who is hosting, there is typically at least a 3 - 5 hour waiting period before the big meal. Personally, I cherish this time. It's an excellent opportunity to eat lots of snacks, enjoy a little football, and round up a few cousins for a game of cards (euchre anyone?). While the cards are being shuffled, grab a few glasses and a bottle of Jester King Blackberry Grisette. Jester King is a brewery based in Austin, TX well known for their impressive farmhouse program. Their Blackberry Grisette is crisp and tart with a wonderful texture, an excellent beverage to kick of festivities!
While the Turkey is resting, go ahead and open Cave de Donnas Classico Rosso Picotendro (Nebbiolo) 2019, this northern Italian gem could use about a half hour of air, and should be ready to drink by the time the table is set. Pour this wine for yourself and anyone you want to impress. It's gorgeous garnet hue, vibrant red fruit, earthy minerality, and silky tannins make this wine a real treasure. As a medium bodied and versatile wine it will pair beautifully with everything from the bird itself to the green bean casserole on the side.
Lastly, for the grown-up kids table a bottle of Zantho Blaufrankisch 2021. A delicious and easy drinking red that doesn't need air! It's tart dark cherry fruit, and earthy spice will be appreciated by even the most unrefined palate.
