What’s on your menu?

Leg of Lamb

If a deliciously seasoned garlic-rosemary Leg of Lamb is set to be the star of your dinner table, try pairing it with Sokol Blosser’s 2011 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir ($38). This Pinot Noir is richly smooth and decadent with flavors of red fruits and cherries and notes of cola, root beer and cassis. Perfect for your main course.

Cedar-grilled Salmon

Whether you’re serving it for brunch, lunch or dinner, any preparation of salmon will pair well with Sokol Blosser’s 2011 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir ($38). The Pinot Noir is also very versatile and a great sip all on its own… when in doubt, choose the Noir!

Glazed Ham

Perhaps the most classic Easter main course (I almost can’t imagine dinner without a clove-studded orange-glazed ham!), if you’ve planned a slow-roasted, glazed ham for your guests, then try pairing with Evolution Sparkling Wine ($22). Its crisp fizziness will add a little “fanciness” to your meal without being overbearing. It is dry on the palate with a crisp and clean finish and is fragrant with apricot, green apple, Bosc pear, white peach and citrus. It may be a little harder to track down in a retail store than the other wines, but if you can find it, it’s definitely worth the taste.

Easter Eggs

Omelets, quiche, deviled eggs… you really can’t plan an Easter feast without an egg-based dish! For brunch, try a prosciutto and gruyere oven-baked omelet for a rich, hearty start to your day and sip Sokol Blosser’s 2012 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris ($19) alongside as its acidity will help cut through the richness of the omelet. Notes of apricot, apple and fig make it a lovely pairing to most brunch dishes.

You can find most of these wines in retail stores nationwide. Learn more at sokolblosser.com.
