Last Minute Wines for Thanksgiving So you haven’t thought much about Thanksgiving yet? Join the club. Think just because Mom is cooking or your going to a friend’s house that your only role next Thursday is to eat too much and make inappropriate comments about your friend’s hot mom?

Time to grow up college boy.

Thanksgiving is about celebrating another year’s harvest. It is about feeling secure about the coming year and about turning the seasonal corner as we head into winter.  Thanksgiving is also about sharing the bounty of the year, and if you’ve been invited to join friends or family (yes, we’re surprised you have been also), you better not show up empty handed.

I understand that you really don’t want to put too much effort into this whole wine shopping thing and that you don’t plan on going out of your way to pick up something special, so let’s take a look at what you’re likely to find at your neighborhood retailer and work with what they’ve got.

One last thing, pay with a twenty and don’t expect much change. Happy Thanksgiving!

    MacMurray is one of the best values in Pinot Noir. Very affordable and delicious.

    No argument with any of your calls.

    Not on your list, but a darned good, very widely available Chardonnay--La Crema Sonoma Coast 2009. Very good with or without food and a good buy. At my local grocery store (I know, it's totally gauche to buy wine at a supermarket.) if you have their frequent shoppers card (these days you have to carry five or six of them), and you buy six bottles (10% off), it coms to less than $12 per bottle.
