Easter Wine’s

The most traditional Easter dinner’s consist of either Ham, Lamb, or even Turkey. I will be doing an Easter Brunch Cruise, therefore I will be consuming mimosa’s and Pinot Noir with my ham during brunch.

When pairing ham with wine, my personal favorite is a nice Pinot Noir. The interesting part is a nice Pinot Noir also can go very well with Lamb. Depending on the preparation. One that I highly recommend is Adelsheim Elizabeth’s Reserve.  It has layers and layers of dark red fruit such as raspberries, spice, cedar notes, elegant yet firm tannins. Due to Pinot Noir being the hardest grape to grow because of temperatures this region excels in making outstanding Pinot Noir’s. Willamette Valley, Oregon. My rating **** Price $52-$60

If you are having a Lamb dinner you can also pair it with a nice Super Tuscan. So many great ones to choose from, so I will pick one that I enjoy for a reasonable price. Lucente beautiful medium bodied with plum flavors, well-balanced acidity, some minerals and a hint of dark chocolate. Smooth finish.

Another great wine for reasonable price.

 My rating **** Price $25-$30

Truly one of the best prices for a great Super Tuscan.

Happy Easter to all!

  1. A pricy little Pinot Noir up there, but I might have to pick one up for a Mothers Day gift. With the condition on the gift being that I get to try some of it, of course.

      That would be a very nice Mother’s Day gift but you know I will be doing an awesome list (blog) for that special day! Actually, that really is a typical price for a single vineyard Pinot Noir. Many single vineyard Pinot’s and Cabernet Sauvignon are upwards of over $90 plus. One of the most expensive wines are Burgundy (France) they are 100 % Pinot Noir and if you get a DRC your talking thousands of dollars per bottle.
