Some Tips on Pinot Noir for Thanksgiving Dinner

redwineglass.pngLast week, the Wall St. Journal's Tastings column by Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher features a list of pinot noirs they recommend for Thanksgiving dinner.

While they personally say they prefer a great aged Cabernet Sauvignon with their turkey, many folks prefer the lighter Pinot Noir. They note that "Pinot Noir, at its best, has elegant, sometimes earthy tastes that would pair well with Thanksgiving dinner without adding yet another big, challenging taste to the table."

What's on their list? (Click here for the complete article):

We're also partial to the Navarro Pinot Noir Méthode à l'Ancienne from the Anderson Valley in Mendocino county. Navarro is one of our favorite wineries and their Pinot is a delight! Enjoy!
