Wine For Thanksgiving

It’s my favorite second holiday no it’s not Christmas although that is my third favorite holiday.

Its Thanksgiving the one day you can eat all you want and not feel bad afterwards
My family’s thanksgiving rock we have two Turkeys and lots and lots of food and desserts and of course wine.
Everyone in my family knows I am a wine blogger so of course my job is to bring wine to our dinner.

I know from experience to more than 2 bottles last year that’s all I brought and by the time I went to get a glass of red wine it was all gone. Yes my loving family is filled with wine lovers unlucky for me.

So this year I’m bring 4 or maybe 5 bottles lol hey you live and you learn right?

So what are some of the wines I’m bring to dinner next Thursday? Their two bottles of wine from Landmark Vineyards Kenwood, CA these wines are perfect for a big Thanksgiving feast.

A Little History
Landmark uses the most time and labor-intensive techniques to produce our wines. Grapes are aged in French oak barrels, where naturally occuring wild yeasts ferment the juice. This creates complex, aromatic wines with deep, expressive flavors.
Landmark Vineyards sources grapes from the finest vineyards in California, including Sonoma, Monterey and Santa Barbara Counties, to produce wines that capture the uniqueness of the region, appellation, and at the pinnacle, a single vineyard.
We source from vineyards that each claim a unique microclimate and soil composition. Through careful blending, our winemaker creates wines that balance and enhance those characteristics. The resulting blend is greater than the sum of its parts.

Now Onto The Wine

First on the list is for all those red wine lovers during thanksgiving dinner if you need a looking for a wine that will take you through dinner and dessert this one for you.

Landmark Vineyards 2012 Overlook® Pinot Noir has a bright ruby core with intense aromas of blackberries, violets, all-spice, and black cherry. This medium-bodied pinot noir exhibits bright acidity with flavors of grilled strawberries, Bing cherry, and candied orange zest that is balanced with softly integrated tannins.

Second on the list has to be my pick out of the two it’s their 2012 Overlook Chardonnay
This wine has complex aromas of lemongrass, freshly peeled grapefruit, and honeydew melon. On the palate, white peach, chalk, and lively citrus notes complete this refreshing wine.
