A Few Hints on the Day Before Thanksgiving:
The Red Wines for tomorrow are Gamay and Pinot Noir, maybe a lighter Grenache. Don’t annoy someone with god damn Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile which makes EVERYONE’S mouth taste like they just ate a tea bag. Go soft. Gentle. Gentler. Beaujolais Village Cru. 2011 Morgon. 2009 Moulin-a-Vent. Maybe a Grenache from north of Barcelona. Yes. That’s the spot.
The White Wines are Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris (avoid Grigio if you can), Gewurztraminer, perhaps. Honestly most white go, since a lotta guys will be drinking beers and the women will start drinking the wine the minute they start to ignore their kids, so whatever really, right ladies? A nice blend, like Connundrum always works.
We got delivery tonight. Bobbo is baking pies and making some appetizers for tomorrow. He does a great raspberry baked brie and a crab dip. Then again, doesn’t everyone.
The Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2012 is fantastic for under $10 a bottle. We have been getting it for between $9 and $10 and have been having a bottle or 2 every night. It is the time to indulge and it is a great year! Remember, this wine can ONLY be drank between Nov. 16th and Jan. 1st. The brave drink it to Jan. 15th. I am a brave man! Santé! A wonderful holiday to you, even if you don’t celebrate it. In much of Aerica, It has turned into a time to celebrate friends and family, no matter how much you hate it!
