Thanksgiving Made Easy

Whaaaaat?! Two newsletters in one week?! Yup, and we’ve got some important things to tell you, so listen up!

The Noble Grape is excited to present: NEW WINE/SPIRIT/BEER BAGS! That’s right, we’ve got new bags, and coming with them is a GREAT deal. Our new, eco-friendly 4-pack bags cost $3. After purchasing your bag, bring it back and fill up the four slots with any wine, beer, and/or spirit of your choice to receive 10% off those bottles! You heard right, 10% off! Gone are the days of wasting plastic and paper bags! Gone are the days of buying half a case of wine to get any type of deal. A new day has dawned, and with it comes the bargain of a lifetime.

Now let’s talk turkey, or more specifically, Turkey Day. With the feast-of-feasts fast approaching, time is running short to choose the perfect wines to pair with your holiday meal. With this in mind, The Noble Grape has selected four wines that will match up wonderfully with any Thanksgiving celebration. La Giare Vermentino has aromas of rosemary, white and yellow fruits, and litchi; on the palate it is smooth, savory and lively. An all around well-structured wine, with slight bitterness on the finish; perfect with turkey and herbaceous stuffing. Etud Rosé is a salmon pink colored Pinot Noir which offers aromas of enticing red fruits and blood orange. Lush flavors of wild strawberries and rhubarb are complemented by a balanced acidity and bright finish. Pair this wonderful wine with soft cheese and veggie dishes. Gundlach Bundschu Merlot has a bouquet of fruit and delicate florals, opening with honeydew melon, white peach, and green plum with hints of spiced white tea and soft apple blossom. The palate leads with crisp grapefruit, fresh-cut pineapple and honeyed pear notes. Lush fruit flavors linger through the clean and slightly off-dry finish. Bust out this red with the main course and enjoy. Zolo Signature Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Bonarda with bold aromas of coffee candy, chocolate-cherry pie, and peppercorn with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium body with a spicy finish. Wrap up your meal with this bottle and be a winner!  

Don’t forget, this Friday, Brian from Compass Wine and Spirits is in charge with a Thanksgiving tasting that will knock your socks off! Les Caves du Prieuré Cremant, Domaine Andre Neveu Sancerre, La Chaussynette Rosé, Alto Limay Joven Pinot Noir, Bodegas Riojanas Canchales, and Wild Hog Zinfandel will all be on the table as Brian talks turkey with you. Swing by this tasting and be the hero of your Thanksgiving festivities.
