Cab with apps, then PN or Chard (or maybe both). Probably all commercial - my lighter reds I've made the last two seasons aren't ready yet. All my others are too heavy. Dad wants to have Cab with apps though - who am I to argue, it's his wine. :D

Commercial Pinot (Mine isn’t ready yet) and a Sonoma Chardonnay that I made 2 years ago that has developed very nice mouthfeel, fruit forewardness and amazing strawberry nose.

Parents are bringing wine from their cellar - very, very nice cellar - I'm happy to do all the cooking and feel it's a fair trade in this case. :)

A Master Vinter Chard and/or a Viognier from a juice bucket.
Podcast https://winefornormalpeople.com/ has fairly interesting "Wine pairings for Thanksgiving" episode I just listened to last week.
Oh, good point. I should have mentioned that we are not having turkey; I am serving Cornish game hens, and Asparagus Oscar (hollandaise, crabmeat). So this all will go well with a Chard, I think. When we have turkey, I generally go for a Gewurtztraminer or a just-off-dry Riesling.

Up north of the 49th ... Thanksgiving was in October. Will finish off some Argentinian Malbec that was started to braise some beef short ribs. But we did make a batch of Utah funeral potatoes ... in sympathy and it’s been a few years. Happy Thanksgiving America.

Sweet rose California Champagne with apps. Traditional turkey dinner, with Pinot Noir from my cellar and maybe some CA Chard from grapes for Mrs Mann.

Had Thanksgiving dinner yesterday (work conflict SiL) with Daughter, SiL, the in-laws, and Sil's brother/wife

Nothing super exotic but all California this year:

Piper-Sonoma Brut with apps <<<surprisingly popular, very decent. I'm not a huge sparkling wine fan but others made up for it and drank 2 bottles!

2016 Robert Mondavi "Fume" Blanc "Oakville" (Sauvignon Blanc and always a reliable winner)
2015 St Supery Napa Sauvignon Blanc (Wife's favorite, my opinion: very good and well made but others better at the price point))
(+750ml 2016 Rodney Strong Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc to make the gravy--I tasted and good enough to stand on it's own IMHO, but all in the gravy)

2014 Renquist Cabernet Franc-Amador <<<Could age a couple more years but very good now. An experiment but it worked
2014 Truitt-Hurst Rockpile Zinfandel (Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma) <<<Great with turkey and will do again at Christmas
2010 Robert Morse "3 Popes" (a GSM Rhone type blend from Amador) <<<Drinking really well now

So not super traditional pairings, but well received! And no dessert wine because guess who forgot to bring it? It's just as well, we all had plenty.

Everyone have a safe and delicious Thanksgiving !

Pinot Noir and a Mexican Nebbiolo, that my sister's husband picked up on a trip to Mexico.
