When choosing red wine to pair with traditional Thanksgiving dinner, you should steer away from heavy full-body reds and focus more on lighter-style reds. Pinot Noir is a wonderful red wine to pair alongside your Thanksgiving turkey as the wine will complement the meal, rather than compete with or overpower the delicate flavors of roast turkey.
Poseidon Pinot Noir hails from the Carneros region of Napa Valley, California. The folks behind Poseidon wines also own a cooperage in Hungary and craft their own wooden barrels which are used to age their California wines.
This Pinot Noir is medium light in color; aromatically shy, somewhat closed in its youth, but slowly shows fresh strawberry, Bing cherries, leather and an earthy undertone. Flavors are beautifully woven together—red fruit, dried raspberries in particular, root-beer and a lift of baking spice. Tannins are integrated and silky. A wine of great balance and harmonious flow.
