Sokol Blosser OregonMerlot Mommy’s notes on the Pinot Noir:

2011 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir, Sokol Blosser ($38) This Oregon Pinot Noir is full of black cherry and red fruit on the nose and the palate. Since Pinot Noir is lighter in body and softer on the palate than some other red wines (such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot), the soft red berry is the perfect red wine pairing for your turkey and other Thanksgiving dishes.
