It’s the day before Thanksgiving, a holiday dedicated to the classic wine problem, “What do you drink that goes with a table full of completely different things?”Zinfandel has not always been a great answer. But it has always been something people tell you to drink, on a holiday that asks us to consider what America means, and what it means to take care of one another.
Let’s be clear: it may have been imported from Puglia. It may have been born in the Balkans. But Zinfandel is quintessentially American. And for those willing to write it off as all sweet rosé or 16% alcohol port bombs, there’s a whole lot of wines out there now from some of the oldest vineyards on the continent that will change your mind: delicate and fresh, nuanced and complex, age-worthy bargains. Zinfandel is good, actually!We’ll set ourselves up to drink three delicious wines with Thursday’s dinner, and maybe beyond. It’s that other quintessential Thanksgiving tradition: leftovers.
