Will my wine for 'Thanksgiving' be a California Zinfandel or a Red Burgundy..Not sure yet

I more or less finished my food shopping today for Thanksgiving, including a Whole Foods free range turkey. As for the wine I am not sure if it will be a California Zin or a Red Burgundy. Zinfandel is often considered a natural match for the thanksgiving turkey. Most California Pinot Noirs are too light for my taste, not enough terroir maybe. Two Zins I am considering are Cline 'Ancient Vines' 2002 ($16.00) nice fruit and spice or the Ridge 'Geyserville' 2002 ($25.00) richer and voluptuous. On the burgundy side maybe the 1997 Faiveley Nuits Saint George 1er Cru ($30.00) would do the trick.
