Wines for Easter

Easter is a wonderful time of the year as we celebrate Spring and a time for families and friends  to come together around the dinner table. The supermarkets are stocked with delicious whole legs of lamb and big fresh hams crying out to make an appearance on your table. Easter is a holiday similar to Thanksgiving and Christmas where so many of us gather to break bread, but let's not forget to consider what wines should be poured to please your guests!

So the best Easter wine tip we can offer is to make sure you don't pour anything too shy or subtle with those big roasts. Lamb needs a big red like our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and with a juicy fresh ham we suggest our wonderfully well received 2009 Rutherford Chardonnay.  

The reason we think our Cabernet Sauvignon goes so well with lamb is because of its vivid, mouth-filling fruit flavors. Our 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon has concentrated raspberry and vanilla flavor that linger on your palate as you sip the wine. It's certainly an equal to the bold, simple flavors of roast lamb and won't overpower the taste of the meat. 

In the same way our 2009 Rutherford Chardonnay is clean and crisp with tremendous balance. It has subtle flavors of white peach and green apple, which layer the palate while its finish is soft yet lengthy and offers hints of butterscotch. Just like the Cab' and the lamb pairing, this Chardonnay offers balance and harmony to your fresh ham and its seasonings. 

You can buy a bottle or case of our 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2009 Rutherford Chardonnay in our wine store today by clicking here.

Whatever wine you choose for your Easter celebration we hope you enjoy this special time for friends and families to come together.

The true character of a person is often revealed when he or she is in a totally unknown territory. So if not for anything else, travel to know yourself.Hawaii Beach Vacations
