French Wines For Thanksgiving?
Last year, I warned people about the coming onslaught on Thanksgiving wine suggestions. Well, here they come again. The NY Daily News is suggesting Rhone wines this year. Now, I love Rhones and I'm not looking to make this into a "freedom-fried" political statement, nor am I looking to point out that the French could create a white blend called "White Flag", but rather to point out the merits of the most American of wines for this most American of holidays - Everyone knows the best thing to match the diverse flavors (tart/sweet, bland/spicy), and not be too tannic is - what else? - Zinfandel...accept nothing less this year.
