A dry bird needs a wine with guts.
Heavy tannins and tooth-squeaky turkey flesh can make more than your mouth pucker. Gary Vaynerchuk is the master of brown bag tastings—I guarantee the results will enthuse the budget-conscious wine consumer. Congrats to the winner; I can’t say I’m entirely surprised. Happy turk day!
I dug through the C+C archives for my favorite Zinfandels of the past 2 years. Prices range from about $12 to $30 (Saldo $30, Frank Family $30, Seghesio $20, Wild Hog $25, & Marietta $12), none of which will let you down.
[The deal of all deals. The Marietta Old Vine Red is almost guaranteed to be in stock in my house this time of year.]
