Riesling, gamay, or pinot. Sparkling is fun too.

You people serious? Merlot, or pinot noir (non-california). I could certainly see gamay.

Pinot noir or a pretty big chard. I think that is going to give you good odds of hitting the sweet spot matching the flavors of the food.

Its all about the sides. My stuffing is predominately sausage, and the fresh cranberry relish is acidic and sweet, thus Gewürztraminer, preferably the Cuvee de Signeur Riebespierre or whatever complicated name Trimbach gives it.

Have had good luck with Auslese/Spatlese of the more necro variety.

Am in the process of committing egregious infanticide (this is a 2011) because: a) a cellartracker note suggested that this is surprisingly good young; b) neither I nor my girlfriend particularly mind a tannic wine; and c) I'm a pleb with no wine storage. Really, really tasty wine for $17 or so.

Here are a few elegant choices that will make you look like a rock star on Thanksgiving. Just say no to the White Zinfandels and bring on the artisan juice. These babies not only taste great they will actually work with your food for the big day and not overwhelm it.

I'm drinking some artisan juice right now. 2008 Villa Antinori Vinsanto del Chianti Classico (DOC). Slightly chilled - delicious stuff.
