Here Here for the Pinot! Coming from Oregon where the Pinot Noir is King, I have to say really, any of the Oregon reds are good. I'm not sure the selection you have at the ready for you Home Chef but I would suggest the following ...

* Big Fire, Pinot Noir by R. Stewart (OR) ... OK, the name got me to taste and the taste got me to buy again!!
* Jest Red, Table Red (CA) ... their Jest White rocks as well
* Cab / Merlot blend, Columbia Crest (OR)
* Big House Red, Table Red (CA) ... again, their table White is great!
* Red Truck, Table Red, themakerisonthetipofmytongue - ugh (CA) ... again picked up because of the label but will buy in bulk because of the taste.

Just the thread I needed! DH is the wine buff of the family - I'm strictly a cheapo boxed Sangria sort of person (much to DH's disgust - but good wine always gives me a hangover). Anyway, he's in Spain on business at the moment, and won't arrive home until late Wednesday night - so I guess it's going to be up to me to get the wine for Thanksgiving Dinner, and I KNOW that dh will NOT be impressed if I serve up cheap plonk, so thanks for the suggestions guys :)
