Gehricke Sonoma Valley Zinfandel 2013 ($30) with Deep-Fried Turkey

August Sebastiani, no amateur when it comes to Sonoma zinfandel, is behind this rather rustic but appealing offering. It's very ripe and juicy, spicy and full-bodied, with a lingering finish. Its slight alcohol hotness will nicely offset the unbelievably crisp skin and moist meat deep-frying brings to the table.
