J Rosé for Turkey Day!
Get in on the Best Kept Secret in Wine
Planning for the Thanksgiving Day feast is in full swing at most households. The food staples are well known and predictable: turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and the obligatory yet inexplicable cranberry sauce.
Many times the wine selections are just as predictable: Pinot and Chardonnay with the traditional bottle of sparkling to kick things off. These are all fine wines that we have served many times and the reason we created our popular Thanksgiving Assortment (see details below), but many of us at J have found a new favorite for our Thanksgiving Day table.
We have recently embraced rosé as our new go-to wine. We love the light and elegant nature of the wine, its refreshing acidity and delicate strawberry and cherry notes. It's a fine complement to fowl or ham, is refreshing enough to serve as an aperitif and can even be paired with those crazy cranberries.
So if you are looking for something a little different to put on the table this year, consider serving our Vin Gris, a dry rosé of Pinot Noir, that many of us here at the winery consider one of our unsung heroes.
The 2009 J Vin Gris is regularly priced at $20 for a 750 ml bottle but to encourage you to try this wonderful wine on your Thanksgiving Day table, we are offering you the opportunity to buy this wine at 25 % off or only $15 per 750 ml bottle. Just enter the coupon code: RTD25 at checkout.

2009 J Vin Gris, Russian River Valley
The 2009 J Vineyards Vin Gris is a dry rosé that displays a light ruby color reminiscent of Scarlett Johansson’s lips in the movie “Lost in Translation.” Lively aromas of strawberry and blueberries leap from the glass. The nose segues into mouthwatering flavors of ripe summer berries, strawberry, and tart cherry pie. There’s a nice acidity on the palate and the flavors follow the nose. This well-balanced wine starts with a crisp fruitiness, followed by a plush mid-palate and then opens to a dry and extremely refreshing finish. The wine has a balanced acidity that brightens and cleanses the palate.
