Meridian 2006 Pinot Noir California



Here’s a great buy I discovered after reading an excellent review about this bargain-priced Pinot in Consumer Reports. Not only is this fruity, spicy Pinot easy-drinking, it continues to improve as it opens up in your glass. For a holiday dinner, I suggest decanting it an hour before serving. If your budget for the holidays is tight, this wine is perfect for you. It’s only $6.99 at Trader Joe’s and during the current sale at BevMo!, and well worth stocking up for your holiday parties.
