Easter Weekend Libations
Updated: Apr 18, 2019
What better way to celebrate a holiday weekend than with a grand tasting? We've put a lot of thought into this beautiful lineup, and every bottle featured will be a great complement to dishes featured on either an Easter meal or a family BBQ simply celebrating the beautiful spring weather. Here are a few highlights to look forward to this Friday afternoon.
The Huber Sparkling Rose, an Austrian blend of red and white grapes, is an ideal picnic wine, brimming with fruit and spice with hints of fresh cherries, forest berries and a sophisticated note of citrus. Dry, fruit-driven yet creamy on the palate, this affordable beauty goes best with grilled fish and vegetables or white meats like turkey and chicken.
Among other wines, the Atom Dark Matter Californian cab will leave its mark as the designated lamb companion. Deep lush dark fruit aromatics with a pepper and spice finish, this new world cabernet is meant to please palates who enjoy jammy flavors, as well as classic cab lovers who go for the oak, spice and balanced tannins. A no brainer with roasted leg of lamb, this new gem is also an ideal BBQ wine for anything off the grill.
For a surprising finishing touch, we'll be pouring a traditional Lebanese Arak, an aniseed spirit full of flavor and freshness that cleans the palate and aids digestion. It is often served as an aperitif or digestif for heavy lunchtime or evening meals. Arak works particularly well with spreads that include olives, spices, gamey meats and mature cheeses. So top off your Sunday feast with this unusual, elegant spirit.
Join us Friday at 4pm for all this and much more!
