Pinot Noir Finale For The 2014 Thanksgiving Dinner Recommendations

   Pinot Noir finale for the 2014 Thanksgiving dinner recommendations will sum-up Pinot Noir red wines to be recommended (or not) by New Hampshire's wine taster for the common man or woman who may like an opinion of locally bought wines.
   I consider this a BIG responsibility, as many have disagreed with my judgments, but many more have found those judgments straight and true.
   These last six Pinot Noir Wines were blind tasted, and since I buy all my own wines, except for an occasional gift, which none of these were, you can rest assured that I was even-handed at my scoring of these wines. Keep in mind that two of my last reviews were beautiful Brunello Montalcino red wines that out-shown these Pinot Noir wines; I highly recommend Brunello wines in general, but also keep in mind that their prices are considerably higher than these six.
   I'm open to all opinions.
