11.06.2018   Turkey Dinner in 4 Wine Lessons

 
It’s not the bird as much as what we eat with it (sweet potatoes & heaven-forbid marshmallows, cranberry sauce, fruit salad, etc.) that causes the wine challenges with a turkey dinner. Many of these sweet & salty combos can make wines taste tart. Here’s your down & dirty guide to a wine that tastes great with a traditional turkey dinner:
 
#1 — Bubbles
Well-made sparkling wine always has good acidity, and acidity is an asset when a food is salty (imagine an anchovy on top of an hors d’oeuvre), sweet (tastes great with chocolate or dessert or sweet dishes such as sweet potato soufflée), and rich foods (cuts through the fat of a cream puff or foie gras or pork rillettes). 

#2 — Round Whites
This style of white is fuller-bodied with nice fruit (not too dry), some acidity for balance but not highly acidic like a Sauvignon Blanc, and key — little to no oak!
 
#3 — Rosé
Rosé has never meet a food it doesn’t like. FULL STOP.
 
#4 — Juicy Reds
Reds are where this meal can be especially tricky because tannic wines go sour with a sweet food and reds that are too big overpower the bird. Juicy reds can be described as lighter or medium in style with good fruit, good acidity, but NOT too tannic!

Two Vintners 2014 Merlot (Columbia Valley, WA) -- Reg $35.99 | Mixed Case $28.79 -- "The 2014 Merlot, which includes 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as a great bouquet of plums, black cherries, tobacco, and graphite. This full-bodied, spicy, opulent, sexy beauty has no hard edges, a mouthfilling texture and a great finish. It's no lightweight (15.2% alcohol) but is beautifully balanced, supple, and just impossible to resist." -Jeb Dunnuck (94 points) Ratings Key>

Perfect food wine: roasted chicken, pork and (even lighter) fish dishes.
