Day #331 of the year.

Domaine Carneros Estate Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is one of the best wines for diverse food pairings, which is often the case on Thanksgiving. Between the turkey, sausage stuffing, savory brussels sprouts cooked in bacon grease, and your aunt’s ‘alternative’ sweet potato mash, there’s a lot going on. Sometimes the day is too chaotic to organize a full-on tasting menu so today, you need one wine to rule them all. Domaine Carneros Estate Pinot Noir 2017 is a perfect Thanksgiving dinner companion. Its medium body won’t overpower any food options, and its bright acidity will pair well with a variety of different things. Enjoy your Thanksgiving everyone and remember to be grateful for family, friends, good health, and wine.

Tasting Notes

This lusciously juicy Pinot Noir is redolent with raspberry and black cherry aromas and flavors enhanced with hints of smoke and exotic spice. It is medium-bodied with bright acidity and a broad richness of even-tempered tannin that stretches into a long finish.
