Wondering which bottle to open on Thanksgiving? Take a cure fromt the flavors of the turkey you're serving.
Roast Turkey with Brown Sugar and Mustard Glaze and Dry Riesling:
Balance out the sweetness of our Southern-style turkey with a crisp, floral white wine, like a dry Riesling. Because some Rieslings are sweet, ask a wine clerk to help you select a dry one. We especially like bottles from the Pacific Northwest.
Emeril's Turkey Roulade and Pinot Noir:
Emeril's bold and smoky turkey roulade calls for a light-bodied red, like Pinot Noir. Pinot's earthiness complements the bacon, and its fruitiness rounds out the flavor of the turkey. An American Pinot Noir is a good (and affordable) choice.
Roast Turkey with Herb Butter and Sauvignon Blanc:
A simple, classic turkey flavored with herbs such as sage and thyme deserves an equally popular wine; Sauvignon Blanc fits the bill. The wine's clean citrus notes are a natural match for mild-tasting turkey. Plus, its acidity provides a pleasant contrast to the richness of traditional Thanksgiving sides.
