Wine To India
Glorious leftovers. Arguably the year’s best eating. At their best straight from the fridge, at 3 a.m., when no scolding eyes are watching.
India Wines Glistening morsels of turkey, white meat and dark, plucked by greasy fingers from the bountiful carcass. Toothsome chunks of stuffing, chock with bits of sausage or chestnuts. That green bean-mushroom soup-fried onion ring casserole eaten cold, its flavors melded into even more complex harmony than at the midday feast. Puckery cranberry sauce, ice cold.
Wines In India The wine for this stand-up feast? A crisp, bone-dry rosé, well-chilled, also left over from the feast. Maybe the 2009 Swanson Rosato Sangiovese, at $21; it has tart cranberry flavors itself. Then, of course, come the formal meals that mother cooks from the leftovers. Stretched out for a week if you planned ahead enough to get that 25-pound bird.

Wine In India When Cesare Mondavi bought the Charles Krug Winery in 1943, he was acquiring a piece of history that dates back to 1861. Mondavi had been in the grape business in Lodi and was a partner in Sunny St. Helena (now Merryvale) in St. Helena. The Charles Krug Winery, founded by German immigrant Charles Krug, had fallen on hard times, starting with Prohibition. The plan was for Cesare's sons, Robert and Peter, to run the business together once Peter got out of the military.
India Wines At first, things ran fairly smoothly. Peter made the wine, and Robert sold it. But tensions finally escalated, culminating in the infamous fight between the brothers that resulted in Robert being ejected from the business and starting the Robert Mondavi Winery. (A timeline in the Charles Krug tasting room says simply: "1965: Peter Sr. and his brother Robert parted ways.") 150 years Krug -- Napa Valley's oldest commercial winery, though it hasn't operated continuously -- is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. Perhaps even more remarkable than that milestone is that the winery has been in family hands for almost 70 years. At age 97, Peter Sr. comes to work every day, while sons Peter Jr. and Marc have taken over the day-to-day work.
