Turkey-Day(s) Gone By

Turkey-Day(s) Gone By

This is my annual post (I began the tradition of posting about what I drank over Thanksgiving back in 1923). This is a fun, photo tour of the excellent time I had in Carlsbad, CA with family drinking through wines that went well with turkey and wines that went well with taking in this view:

Jonny Cigar: Blackbelt in Wine

The highlight of our meal was the drinking of several different 2004 Williams-Selyem pinots from different vineyards as well as one Spring Mountain 100% Petite Verdot. Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for the winemakers that labored over their fabulous creations so that we may enjoy them before passing out while football rails on in some distant corner of some expansive living room. This is the thanksgiving of America.
