What wine goes with Thanksgiving Dinner?


The Wine Cask blog has a good post about Thanksgiving and wine http://winecask.blogspot.com This begs the question: What wine will you be serving with Thanksgiving dinner and why? I believe I will be serving a Sparkling Burgundy, because I believe it is festive yet will complement the turkey, a Riesling (not sure which one yet) to complement the earthier foods (potatoes, green beans, etc.) and my own homemade Peach Chardonnay perhaps for after dinner as a dessert wine because of the sweetness. And maybe a bottle of Apple White from Ashley Lynn Winery, just because apples remind me of fall & Thanksgiving. I would be very interested in hearing your wine pairings with Thanksgiving dinner, why you chose them, what order you will be serving them, etc.

Man there are so many options and you get different advice from every "expert" you talk to.

Me...I'm taking a bunch of riesling for my family to enjoy -- from Mosel, Alsace, the Finger Lakes and yes Long Island. I'm also going to take some local Cabernet Franc just because my family doesn't have much exposure to it and I think it will go well with the plethora of flavors and textures in any Turkey Day Dinner.
