Pinot Noir and Autumn is here!

With the colors and smells of Autumn arriving, you know that the "River of No Return" is advancing unrelentingly toward Halloween and Thanksgiving. This Fall, I'm determined to taste as many Pinot Noir wines as I can, so as to make an effort to recommend some of these most versatile red wines to New Hampshire wine shoppers for Thanksgiving, and though other red wines will do, Zinfandel for instance, Pinot Noir will probable edge-out the other "Reds" in pairing for typical Thanksgiving cuisine.
If you can't wait, here's my current list of Pinot Noir wines already tasted:
Pinot Noir (USA), Pinot Noir (French), two from New Zealand: O'Reilly's 2009 Pinot Noir, and Brancott Estate Marlborough 2011 Pinot Noir, plus one PN from Australia: Yering Station 2007 PN.
Newly tasted two PNs from Germany: Weingut Bernhard Huber Malterdinger Trocken 2009er Pinot Noir, Baden, and Neipperger Schlossberg 2010 Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), $28.04-$32.99, 90+ points (Germany).
My latest PN: Anton Bauer Wagram/Österreich (Austrian) 2008 Pinot Noir, $8.29-$19.99, 89 points.
