About.com recommends our Cabernet for Thanksgiving

About.com recommends 2005 Cabernet as a Top 10 Thanksgiving Day wine

“Thanksgiving can be a high pressure event with all of the food prep, guest preferences, wine selections and seating arrangements, but it doesn’t have to be! We’ll try to pare down the preparations by offering up a starting point for our top Thanksgiving wine picks and pairings.

For those that believe all special occasions call for a Cab, the 2005 Smith-Madrone is the perfect all-American Cab to call on for celebrating Thanksgiving. Limited production, dry-farmed and crafted by two brothers, Stuart and Charles Smith, this Cab is remarkable for its concentration, intensity, overall balance and final finesse. Bringing a truly artisanal wine to the table with a mix of red and black fruit, plenty of power and an undeniable presence, this is a top pick for the holidays.”

No such drama here, just hopefully some provocative fun.
