The Perfect Thanksgiving Wines

The Pisoni family makes some terrific Pinot Noir in the cool climate Santa Lucia Highlands of California.  They are experts with this difficult to grow grape variety.  Their Pinot Noirs are both delicate and expressive.  Their 2012 Luli Pinot Noir ($21.99) has aromas of rose petals and fresh berries.  On the palate there are flavors of boysenberry, cherry and strawberry along with a subtle spicy finish.  It is a very polished smooth Pinot which makes it a perfect match with a traditional Thanksgiving Turkey dinner.  For a white wine alternative, the 2012 Bott Freres Pinot Blanc ($13.99) from Alsace, France has the perfect acid balance to both compliment the meal and cleanse the palate of sauces so you are ready for the next bite.  It has gentle melon and pear fruit flavors along with a nice mineral like finish.  If you prefer Chardonnay, the 2012 Montoya Chardonnay ($12.99) from Monterey, California has both rich creamy flavors and enough acidity to cleanse the palate as well.  If you would like to reserve any of these wines, please contact me at
