Move over Nouveau Beaujolais, we have a slew of new wines that pair well with stuffing, cranberry sauce and all those Turkey Day goodies. Gobble up these glasses of red in true feasting style. The Dreaming Tree Crush 2013, $15 Photo Credit: The Dreaming Tree If you're planning on layering your cranberries, potatoes and turkey on a nice warm roll, this red blend is for you. This oak-aged California blend, with berry-like flavors, is sure to be refreshing after that loaded Thanksgiving sandwich. Qupé 2012 Santa Barbara County Syrah, $30 Photo Credit: Qupé Biodynamic and organic grapes give this Syrah deep and spicy notes that balance well with roast vegetables, roast turkey and pretty much anything coming out of your oven. Damilano Barbera d’Asti 2013, $25 Photo Credit: Damilano If you're in it all for the side dishes, try this light-bodied, tart Nebbiolo with blackberry and pomegranate flavors and light spicy notes. Enjoyed best with a slight chill, this is a perfect gateway wine from rosé season to the heartier months. Passimento Rosso Veneto, $15 Photo Credit: Pasqua The blend of Italian merlot, corvina and croatina grapes is sold at Trader Joe's wine shop, but identifies as a fine wine brand aimed at millennials. (See the Instagram-ready, graffiti-like bottle.) Pairs well with Italian food, and, of course, all those carbs in your Thanksgiving spread. Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz, $10 Photo Credit: Jam Jar If Thanksgiving has you waiting until dessert for something sweet, pop the cork on this fruity South African Shiraz before the meal even begins. Pairing well with cheese and cured meats, this sweet wine makes pre-meal conversation easy with that awkward cousin you only see every other year. Dark Horse Pinot Noir 2014, $14 Photo Credit: Dark Horse This juicy California pinot has notes of cherry and strawberry and goes down easily with a heavy, carb-centric meal. A rich purple color and velvety tannins disguise this wine as a product worth more than its suggested retail price.
