What to pair with your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving Meal?

Cultivar makes your moments become memories! We recommend these wines for your late fall celebrations.

To start your meal we will be serving our 2021 Cultivar Rosé, a great wine for any celebration and to toast your friends and family while nibbling on cheese and charcuterie platters. Julien Fayard has brought a Provencal flair to this incredible blend and it was named “50 Best”.

From there we move to our 2021 Cultivar Russian River Pinot Noir. Our tasting of this wine made it clear that it is a very versatile wine. The ruby color brings to mind fresh raspberries and Gala apple peel. On the nose: delicate aromas of blackberry, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, mint, and cracked pepper. Your palate is rewarded with strawberry, cranberry, and bright red fruits, but with a light & fruity body. The finish is dry and delicate, featuring medium acid and just a hint of tannins. Serve this pinot with your stuffed turkey, mushroom and rice dish.

Looking for something a little different? Try our 2019 Cultivar Napa Valley Syrah, a gorgeous and opulent Napa Valley Syrah. Dark, bold, and brilliant describes both the color and the nose, as pepper, allspice, and smoked meats explode from this dark purple wine. Waves of black currant, juicy blueberry, and boysenberry greet the palate, capped by a lingering finish of cherry, smoke, graphite, and anise. Pair it with curry dishes, Kung Pao chicken, pork belly bao, mushroom risotto, and duck.

Then for dessert we love the 2014 Cultivar Port! Created in the Tawny Port style, this decadent dessert wine greets the nose with layers of caramel, dulce de leche, and orange peel. Warm waves of spun sugar, maple, and dark chocolate roll across the palate, ending with a creamy, mocha finish that seems to linger forever.
