Spring Wine Picks

Whether you celebrate spring with a family feast of ham, lamb or cabbage and carrots, here are 5 great wines to enjoy! 

2007 Schramsberg “Blanc de Blancs.”  A terrific domestic sparkling wine. Great with oysters or on its own.

2010 Lewis Cellars Chardonnay, Napa.  A full-bodied and delicious chardonnay that’s great with matzoh ball soup or sturgeon.

2010 Domaine de Perriere Sancerre.  Vibrant lemon/lime citrus notes and refreshing acidity make this a wine that I keep coming back to.  With its herbal and grassy notes, this wine is perfect with smoked fish or a goat cheese plate.

2009 Aberrant Cellars “Carpe Noctum” Pinot Noir.  Another great example of Willamette pinot.  Raspberry and strawberry fruit with red floral aromatics and well-balanced acidity make it extremely versatile, so serve this with your ham or your lamb.

2009 Covenant Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa.  A delicious Napa cab with cherry, plum and cassis notes.  Full bodied, complex and delicious… it also happens to be Kosher, although you don’t have to be to enjoy this wine!
