I thought this would be a creative way to introduce my recommended wine for the traditional holiday meal of turkey and the usual supects side dishes. Also with the wine library video it would present some other ideas for your holiday feast. The wine I am about to introduce here should pair nicely with all parts of your meal, from appetizers to dessert. Enjoy!
Zilliken Riesling Butterfly, (Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken) a well balanced and delicate wine from the Mosel region, deftly combines peach flavors with a hint of floral notes on the nose; dances on the palate, with enough acidity to refresh your worked over palate. Cheers everyone and have a great Thanksgiving Holiday!!

By the way the tasting fee of $10.00 can be shared, but I recommend everyone get their own as the tasting fee includes a very nice Riedel 'O' Cabernet/Merlot/Bordeaux Stemless Wine Glasses, which do have the L'Adventure logo. These glasses sell for $24.95 for the pair retail. But you can get them with your tasting (pours are very generous). Make sure you go early to avoid the crowds, this tasting room or Salon as they call it will fill up quickly. L'Adventure is on most folks hit parade, so please stop on by, taste, enjoy and take some home to enjoy on a special occasion.
That's is all I have time for now, but I still have 3 more wineries from the area that I believe will shock and awe your palates. So until then Cheers! Remember a day without wine is just not a very good day!
Bordeaux Red Blends
Central Coast, California
(this vintage is sold out) Their Price: $41.99 @ wine.com
But it can still be purchased for 36.00 from the winery, if you join the Wine Society or 43.99 without the club. If you purchase six bottles and live in California, here's a gift no shipping charges! Enjoy this one gang!
Again if your in the area, by all means stop by for a visit. Just don't go on Saturday afternoon, unless you want to drown in a sea of imbibers.. so I would recommend booking an early midweek tour and tasting. I would love to hear back about your adventures with this wine. Until then Cheers!
Yum factor of 4 Stars - 11/14/2008 I would buy this wine again Some times you wonder how any wine can be so good and for a reasonable price. This wine hits both notes in stride and takes it to the house! If you love wine and the NFL, well you will definitely understand when I say, this wine could go...... all... the wayyyyy!! This wine danced on our palates like a lithe ballerina @ the Nut Cracker and delivered quite a performance. Wow a long persistent finish, soft gentle red fruits, a nice spice box on the mid-palate and the Alc. is unobtrusive. This wine will most likely sell out quickly! I went to Justin in October and purchased two, came home and a couple of weeks later drank another one. I just ordered another 1/2 case. Better Hurry!
