Wine News

As predicted, we’re already out of Beaujolais Nouveau but we have plenty of great wines to enjoy with this year’s Thanksgiving dinner. Great Malbecs, Zinfandels, Cabs and Merlots along with some outstanding Pinot Noirs round out the reds. Chardonnays, Rieslings, Sauvignon Blancs and, of course, delicious Chenin Blancs all available for your Thanksgiving dinner are here and looking for a holiday table to accentuate.

Just a few new wines this week, just trying to keep the racks full…

Dan’s Feature

This week’s feature is yet another wine from none other than Chuck Wagner (Caymus Wines), Mer Soleil Reserve 2018 Pinot Noir. Whatever the Wagner Family goes after, you can pretty much bet on it being one of the best. This $24.99 Caymus Family Mendocino Santa Lucia Highlands bottle is no exception. “This Pinot Noir shows loads of fruit and a hint of oak. Tasting notes further describe this wine as offering aromas and flavors of ripe boysenberries, black fruit and savory oak”. Does this go well with roast turkey…you bet it does! This full bodied, full flavored Pinot is a deal at this price and will be something special for the Thanksgiving Dinner table. You can rarely go wrong with a wine from the Wagner Family and this bottle is an example of what they do best.

Dan’s Pick

Monmousseau Vouvray is this week’s pick and probably has been most year’s at this time. This Chenin Blanc from the village of Vouvray in the Loire Valley of France produces a wonderful example of this varietal that just borders on Demi-sec (little sweet) and as I always say…goes wonderfully with turkey! This has been our biggest selling white wine every year for 15 years. While we’ve carried several from a variety of producers, we have kind of settled in with Monmousseau because of both price point and, of course, drinkability. Finding a white wine that compliments the Thanksgiving dinner makes it a simple matter in pleasing the masses at your dinner table this Thursday.

Food News

For the upcoming season, we’re keeping all of our steaks (ribeyes & strips) Dry Aged at the Prime or Wagyu level and all individually packaged at 14oz. Can we get others in? Sure, just ask! We’ll also be doing our best to choose some great standing rib roasts for your upcoming Christmas celebration. While we’re not planning on getting any Alaskan King Crab in, Snow Crab may be our next go to. Lobster Tails are in this week, 4oz cold water lobster tails for $12.99 each. We enjoy special ordering items, just let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll take care of it.

Food Feature of the Week

This week’s feature is one of my seasonal favorites! Paolo’s Panettone from Italy. This is not your old Italian fruit cake…Paolo’s is a light and airy gourmet holiday cake stuffed and filled with either Limoncello or Chestnut cream. These Italian favorites are great served at a holiday brunch or simply as dessert after any of your holiday meals. These are a once a year option for us and at $24.99 we’re excited to share these decadent Italian treats with you and yours this holiday season.

Final Thoughts

Are there transportation and supply issues we are all dealing with? Sure. Empty shelves at the big box grocery stores? You bet. Those items you hoped to buy for Christmas seem not to be available at the moment? Just your luck. Let us, however put everything into perspective. It’s Thanksgiving, and even with all the above aggravations, we all still have a lot to be thankful for. Remember the season and the reason. It’s a time to come together and enjoy each others presence. To break bread and be thankful for that which we do have… Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!

Cheers from all of us here at The Wine Merchant!
