Great Wine Picks for Thanksgiving

By Adrienne Francis

All these wines are from the NY Times – Nov. 8, 2012 by Eric Asimov. Florence Fabricant and her team of specialists chose and also rated them so I don’t want anyone to think they were my picks. But if they say thiey’re good and under $25 bucks, then I’m in. Here is the list without the wordy article.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. We have so much to be grateful for – especially this year. Just the fact that we have a home to live in, family to love us and food and wine to share makes us very fortunate. My thoughts for sure are with those that do not. Have a wonderful holiday!!!
