Good chance you've seen Post & Vine featured here before. It's just so good, and speaks to the type of wines we carry here: local vintners for more expensive wines (Rebekah Wineburg for Quintessa, Erica Kincaid for Rudd) own and make something unique, wonderful...and well priced!
Thanksgiving last year, party of 20 enjoying the food and company. With everything going on, an expensive wine is pretty much lost on me. I want something with bold flavors and a unique twist. I chose the Post & Vine as I had not tried it since the springtime. Glad I did.
Bold flavors of black and blue fruits. Black pepper, pie spice and anise notes. Medium acidity and fine, smooth tannins. This baby is drinking great now. Yes, it was perfect with roast turkey, giblet gravy and mushroom/sausage stuffing. Rest of the year, I suggest it with bacon burgers, braised beef short ribs and caramelized onions and mushrooms.
