Easter Wine Selections 2014

Jadschloss Spatburgunder Sekt Rose – A bone-dry sparkler made from 100% Pinot Noir from Germany's Rheingau region. Simply a delight to drink: dry without being austere and driven by minerality as opposed to fruit. A longtime customer and Cavaniola Family favorite. $22.99  

Bruno Gobillard Champagne Brut Vielles Vignes Non-Vintage – A classic blend: 60% Chardonnay for freshness and citrus with 20% Pinot Noir for depth and 20% Pinot Meunier for red fruit. Dry Champagne is an underrated food pairing, complementing nearly everything while refreshing the palate. $49.99

Karine Lauverjat 2013 Sancerre – Our favorite Sancerre, delivers classic citrus and grassy notes with crisp acidity that makes it a natural at the Easter table. No new oak, made from organic grapes. $25.99

Agnes et Didier Dauvissat 2012 Petit Chablis – Classic Chablis flint, but a warm personality with no new oak. An elegant pairing with just about anything on the Easter Menu but especially seafood. $27.99

Domaine Jean Rijckaert 2010 Pouilly-Fuiseé “Les Croux” – Jean Rijckaert is a master winemaker who sources his Chardonnay from old vine sites in Burgundy and the Jura. This wine offers subtle lemon and mineral scents on the nose. The palate is crisp and fresh on entry but expands to a superbly rich Maconnais Chardonnay with deftly-integrated oak. Ideal for our Slow Roasted Salmon. $49.99 

Commanderie de Peyrassol 2013 Rosé – Direct from Provence, we are happy to introduce the new vintage of one of our (and your!) favorite rosés. Delightful as an aperitif, the Cinsault/Grenache/Syrah blend has enough body and length to pair well with many of our Easter dishes and would be splendid with ham. $24.99

Monticello Vineyards Estate 2010 Estate Pinot Noir – Relatively light-bodied for a California Pinot, especially one from Napa Valley. Pure cherry fruit shines through a smooth, polished texture. A versatile, refreshing red that would enhance many of our dishes, especially the ham. $44.99

CVNE Vina Real Crianza 2009 – Rioja is a classic pair for the Easter meal, and the Vina Real delivers concentrated Tempranillo character while remaining medium-bodied and very drinkable due to the limited use of oak. Will stand up to lamb, but light-footed enough to work well with many of our dishes. $19.99

Leo Family Red 2010 – Local vintner and winemaker John Leo makes his small-production Leo Family label only in the best vintages, sourcing top quality North Fork Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc –in this case from the superlative 2010 harvest. His Red delivers classic Bordeaux-style taste and silky texture from deft oak treatment. A classic pair with lamb. $42.99

Domaine Tournon Shay's Flat Vineyard 2011 Shiraz – Wine made in Australia by Rhone master Michel Chapoutier from a single top-quality Victoria vineyard. Incredibly rich, packed with dark fruit and black pepper notes that will match our boldly flavored lamb perfectly. A stunner from Down Under: $39.99
