Thanksgivukkah Pours

Fab feasts aren't just about what's on the plate, though that is important. It's also about what's in your goblet.

We started with a white wine blend from Oblivion Cellars in Paso Robles. Floral and citrus ascend tantalize your nose while tropical fruit notes splash the palate. It finishes crisp and clean with a hint of caramel. This was the perfect match for our Matzo Ball Soup and salad course.
With our main dishes I poured the 2011 Bottlerock Cabernet from Smith and Hook. Bold aromas - of summer berries, cola, and exotic cloves - rise out of the glass. But, to me, the most memorable thing about this wine is its vibrant, robust, yet silky feel. It's lush and decadent.
