Special Thanksgiving Pairing
I was thinking about what cigar I am having tonight and it really is going to depend on the wine. Since the main course today will be turkey one would suspect a white wine.
I do like a nice oaked Chardonnay or a Pinot Gris with the main part of the meal, but since there are so many different flavors on a typical Thanksgiving table there is a place for multiple wines, including a nice red like a Petit Verdot or a Zinfandel. In fact, the evening will probably start out with a glass of something bubbly like Proscecco.
So at the end of the meal, when you I am sitting back relaxing, I think I am going to treat myself to one of my favorite smokes Arturo Fuente Hemingway. It is a wonderful medium bodied cigar with Cameroon wrapper giving it a deep earthy flavor, perfect after a big meal.
So that's my plan for the day, what's yours?
