I bring wine that fits the food and the audience. A turkey dinner with just casual wine drinkers? Some Cardwell Hill Estate or Meomi Pinot would be excellent IMO.
FWIW, I never pick the wine to bring wine that's "best" or "most expensive" in my cellar. If I'm bringing wine where real wine folks will be I try to pick what I think will be drinking the best at that moment from a quality producer.
