A nonvintage blend, the Evolution is as clever as it gets. ...melds several different grapes into an aromatic, lushly detailed whole. Stone and tropical fruits abound, loading the palate with flavors of peaches, cream and lemon meringue. It's thoroughly delicious without a hint of wood.

While planning the Thanksgiving menu, we scanned our shelf of favorites to compile the wine list. We looked for something to please a variety of tastes and came up with a red, a white and a sparkler, each of which will pair sublimely with turkey and all the trimmings - and each of which is an American wine, for this all-American holiday. We plan to have all three on hand.

For our white wine, we recommend a crazy mixed-up blend from Oregon that thrills us with each new "edition." The wine is Sokol Blosser Evolution, 16th edition.

Here's what we said of it a couple of years ago: "Styled simply an American White Wine, Evolution somersaults onto the tongue and lands with both feet, executes a few showy backflips complete with a twist and then dismounts with a big laugh, leaving your palate surprised, exhilarated and ready for anything."

Every word holds true today. Expect citrus, crisp acidity, floral undertones and a flawlessly clean and refreshing finish. Serve it as an aperitif or with the main course.
