Red and White Wines for Thanksgiving
Pinot Noir’s acidity provides a pop of fresh, fruity tartness that lightens up a heavy meal.
Tastes like: Red cherry, raspberry, and currant spiked with earthy, herbal elements.
Worth noting: To maximize Pinot Noir’s bright character, try serving the light-bodied wine a bit cooler than other reds—30 minutes in the refrigerator or five minutes in an ice bucket will do the trick.
