Thanksgiving dinner is a day-long event for a lot of families, so might as well drink something delicious during the festivities! Pinot Noir is a great choice for Thanksgiving because these wines are food-friendly, with soft tannins and a fresh burst of tart acidity that helps to cut through rich dishes. They have herbal notes that complement all the sage, thyme, and fennel in a Thanksgiving feast, and an earthiness that brings out the best in mushroom gravy, stuffing, and the turkey itself. At its best, Pinot is elegant, sultry and savory, with a pop of fresh tart berries and base notes that remind me of the wet forest floor. The tasting will cover a selection of Pinot Noirs, ranging in style and price point, and all equally suited for your Thanksgiving table!
