St. Urbans-Hof Mosel Old Vines 2011 Riesling, $14.99-$17.99, 89 points, has a light golden color, and the aroma is an excellent toasty vanilla and apricot.
This dry to off-dry Riesling has a light-plus body carrying good acidity and an interesting, almost spritz-like apple with apricot notes.
The finish is ginger with a good sense of minerality.
We paired this with Buffalo wings, celery, and blue cheese dressing, and were impressed with just how versatile a good Riesling is.
For that Thanksgiving day dinner, I recommend a good Riesling. Make it at least two Rieslings, with a sweeter one for those with a sweeter palate. Let me recommend Fünf (5) Sassy White Riesling. I believe it is still on sale for $6.99 at the NHLS.
