WSR – Thanksgiving Feast 2011

Over the past few years the group has decided to do a Thanksgiving dinner and have everyone bring a wine of their choosing that they think will go best with the turkey, dressing, gravy and all the makings.   This year there was a little bit of everything across the spectrum of wines, see list below.  

 The Thanksgiving Dinner and tasting was put on by Richard R. and Linda and what a feast it was!  The champane openers were excellent that went with all the cheeses, olives and pate.  The turkeys were cooked to perfection along with stuffing, yams, potatoes, green beans and gravy.  Last but not least pumpkin pie to finish the night off!!  What a way to get the season off to a festive start and yes the wines were exceptional as well. 

Here was the line up for the wines and pardon the spelling mistakes and hope they can be corrected as I was reading the bottle labels off the pictures that were taken.
