Oregon Pinot Noir for Thanksgiving
Pinot Noir is one of the great wines of the world – and it goes especially well with what will be on your Thanksgiving table.
Thanks to bright acidity and mild tannins, Pinot Noir tends to be a superb food wine, especially the plethora of flavors that grace the Thanksgiving feast. Turkey meat, spuds, stuffing, casseroles – all pair pretty beautifully with Pinot Noir.
And, of course, Oregon is the center of the Pinot Noir universe in the New World. No region outside of Burgundy focuses quite so heavily on the grape.
Here are a dozen examples of Oregon Pinot Noir that we’ve tasted recently, all of which would be delicious for you and your holiday guests.
