Turkey Day without the Turkey

Thanksgiving 2008 with my brother Tony.

'06 Kim Crawford, Marlborough, Pinot Noir
I've been testing out versatile reds and whites. For the most part, Pinot Noir is a solid versatile red wine variety. This pinot had aromas of strawberries and cherries. It had a light acidity and low tannins. A good wine for a diverse holiday meal.
