Herrigoia Rioja $14.99 - Beaujolais Nouveau is another of the classic Thanksgiving pairings, but it seems to have fallen out of favor recently and sales have bottomed out (we probably won't bring in more than a case or two this year). One of the things that makes Beaujolais Nouveau such a great Thanksgiving wine is the way it's produced, by utilizing a fermentation process called Carbonic Maceration. Whole grapes, before pressing undergo fermentation in and Oxygen poor, Carbon Dioxide rich environment and this unique style of fermenting is responsible for the intensely fruity, creamy, bubble gummy flavors of Nouveau. Herrigoia does this with Rioja's Tempranillo grape and the results are fabulous and different from any other Rioja you've ever had. Super juicy (with out being sweet) and full of blackberry, blueberry and purple fruit flavors with super soft tannins.
