THE REVIEW

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. There is nothing quite like a table full of your favorite comfort food (turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and sweet potato) surrounded by good friends, family and great wine.
    This Thanksgiving, I am cracking open the 2013 The Terraces Zinfandel. Only 560 cases of this beauty are made each year. A few years ago this great producer supplied Caymus with its Cabernet Sauvignon only to start producing the wines on its own and introduced the Zinfandel varietal into its repertoire.
    Zinfandel is a uniquely American varietal and is the perfect pairing to the upcoming uniquely American holiday feast. The Terraces displays beautiful ruby color with ripe berry, clove and savory meat aromas along with leather and dark chocolate. The wine has a beautiful mouth feel with soft tannins and a long, fruit-filled finish, but balanced. If that doesn't get your palate humming, then how about the fact that Zinfandel pairs perfectly with the nuanced flavors of the turkey spices and equally as good with the sweeter components of cranberry and sweet potato.
    Enjoy this wine on Thanksgiving day and even with your leftovers the day after. I know I will.Read More »
