Consider this a challenge/throwdown on Thanksgiving wine recommendations:
What's up with the white wines? Is that site run by Communists?
As a true patriot you *must* post about your thoughts on the matter.
Without your input I may as well have a Pabst Blue Ribbon with my turkey.
Less of a challenge and more of a wake up call, Thanksgiving Day, America's most wondrous day of the year, is but a week away. Holy Moley!
Pabst? Do they still make Pabst?
I have a pair of matching Pabst Blue Ribbon barrel heads on the wall. They are about 35 years old, dating to the era when plastic had begun to lose it's stigma and was rapidly replacing metal and wood in a variety of applications. The faux barrel heads are very well done and you'd not realize they are plastic until you reach up and touch them. Originally intended for a beer bar somewhere but I ended up with them thanks to a Truck Drivin' Man.
Yes I know he's drinking coffee and not Pabst.
For the record, much of the decor here at Casa de las Rocas Grandes is what TWC refers to as Roadside Americana. That's a technical term.
Oh, sorry, the commies over at White Wine heaven. Right. To be sure, we expect a plethora of whites, after all, it's Thanksgiving and turkey is, well.....conducive to white wine....gasp.....gasp....choking.....there, I said it.
To be fair, I did see a nod to Syrah and Zin (Gamay almost doesn't count as a red wine, but that's an issue for another day).
Some other good advice at The Kitchen, including, keeping it simple and staying within your budget. To which I might add, make sure you have a bottle or two of something you, personally, really enjoy.
Thanksgiving wines sometime on Friday (Saturday for email subscribers) so you can shop the weekend.
And remember Compadres, lips that touch white wine shall never touch mine!
