Thanksgiving Pairing: Cosmia Pinot Noir

A cheap Pinot from Trader Joe’s to go with turkey, mashed potatoes, and pie – we had 5 different desserts this year!

Cosmia Pinot Noir (2012) Sonoma County, California – $9

Photo0281Color: bright garnet red.

Aroma: fruit dominates on the nose – raspberry mostly.

Taste: Big fruit up front – raspberry, cherry, cranberry – and then just a touch of meatiness on the finish. A nice choice for the cranberry-sauce lovers. The finish is better than you’d expect for the price – long and balanced.

A pretty good deal for the money – I’d stock up on this if you’re serving any kind of poultry or game between now and the New Year. Recommended.
