What Are We Drinking Now? Belle Pente

Kerry has the perfect Pinot for Thanksgiving!

Belle Pente – 2020 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Good friends and good wine — a perfect pairing!

As I prepare to gather with treasured friends for Thanksgiving, one of the wines I’ll be serving this year is the tried-and-true Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from Belle Pente (pronounced pont). This elegant Pinot showcases bright aromas of red berries, mushroom, and a hint of licorice. The wine’s balance of fruit, earthiness, and oak on the palate is carried to a long, exquisite finish that is sure to delight.

Pinots are a traditional favorite for Thanksgiving dinner, complementing a wide range of dishes and flavors that are typically served. Be sure to grab one or two for your holiday table.
