Cheers to Thanksgiving

Turkey season is upon us once again, and for those of us who would rather not slave away in the hot kitchen making a dish to bring to the family dinner this year, the gift of wine seems much more appropriate!  Very little is more appropriate than Beaujolais Nouveau for Thanksgiving, as it is an extremely fresh wine whose flavors and structure (body, acidity, alcohol, etc.) make a perfect match...
