Okay folks, Thanksgiving is right around the corner so its time for some holiday recommendations. Below are some wines you might want to consider. I used the following criteria: only light reds and whites were considered – definitely stay away from the oak monsters during dinner; I tried to stay under $25 given that a) the economy is bad and b) it is just family after all.

Yellow Hawk Sangiovese 2004 $19 (NOTE: link opens .pdf)
