Delores Huff Estates Winery Merlot 2011

Why This Wine: The red berry overtones of this Merlot match turkey stuffed with a savoury dressing with mushroom and fresh cranberries. The wine is light with soft tannins, but has a lovely acidity for the cranberries and the mushrooms. Since turkey does not have much fat you do not need a heavy red wine.

Adam Dr Zenzen Riesling Spatlese

Why This Wine: This Riesling gives you honey, baked apple, peach, and mineralality undertones, with a great balance of sweetness from the residual sugar. Turkey dinner is an indulgence, and this wine isn’t too heavy, but has the acidity to cut through all that richness with some sweetness to pair with the sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce!
