Wow, those are amazingly stringent wine tasting requirements -- I'm glad everyone managed to enjoy themselves (in no small part due to the excellent wines you'd selected, I suspect).

I just added your blog to my blogroll, and will take this opportunity to share some wisdom you imparted to me years ago (and which I blogged about, with attribution [of course], last year around this time): the best wine to pair with Thanksgiving food is whatever wine you like to drink.
