Vino that compliments Thanksgiving dinner

Blahhhh I've been stuck with the task of bringing a wine to compliment Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow with relatives. Standard stuff- turkey, fixins, etc.

 

I'm thinking for white a riesling or gewurztraminer, and for red a pinot noir or zinfandel [no white!].

 

Any thoughts on this? Any wine connoisseurs? I have no regional preference [Napa/Sonoma, Oregon/Washington, Chile, Australia, etc.].

Pinot grigios are drier whites that would would work with turkey and potato dishes. Not sweet like rieslings and chardonnay, which is why I like pinot grigio. Sangioveses are a light full red that can generally work with anything.. And thats probably what I would pick up, since it's probably something no one has had. Sangiovese is the 'base' for chianti, it is a 90% sangiovese, with a 10% blend of petit verdot or merlot or any other type of grape. As the main ingredient, it has most of the flavor of the chianti, and I think it's better solo, so look for a straight sangiovese, un blended.
