Best Wine to Pair with Turkey (Roasted Traditional Style)
From Thanksgiving to an everyday dinner, what's the best wine to pair with turkey that's been cooked in a traditional roasted style? IntoWine asked our experts for their recommendations: Turkey is such an American dish. It is ubiquitous at Thanksgiving. Therefore, I think it calls for an American wine. While Zinfandel will work, I am going to recommend thinking about an Oregon Pinot Noir. The Pinot’s from Oregon straddle the line between being fruit forward California versions and more earthy wines like those from Burgundy. There are so many made in many different styles and price points. I think one of the best values out there is the basic Sineann Pinot Noir Oregon . While this top produce r (whom I have known for over thirty years) makes individual vineyard bottlings, the basic version can be found for $30 or less. It is very good now and will last for five to ten years in your cellar. Great up front cherry fruit with a complexity from using different vineyards. It will go great with Roasted Turkey. - Loren Sonkin , IntoWine.com Featured Contributor and the Founder/Winemaker at Sonkin Cellars.
