Cheese and Wine Pairings for Easter

 

 

Scharffe Maxx Natural Cheese 

This imported cheese from Switzerland has a bold, nutty bite and packs a beefy pungency. This cheese is a great addition to a cheese plate, it makes the perfect grilled cheese paired with sweet raspberry jam and smoked ham on rye bread. It is also memorable grated over soups or salads. Serve with Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon, hard cider, or pints of IPA. 


Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon  

 

Big and bold in style, Carnivor Cabernet offers intense, dark fruit aromas and deep, inky color. A plush, velvety mouthfeel frames rich flavors of dark berries, coffee, mocha and toasted oak, all backed by a distinctive smoothness and a lingering, silky finish. 






Edna Valley Sauvignon Blanc 

 

This Sauvignon Blanc is well-balanced with rich citrus and tropical fruit flavors such as orange zest, grapefruit and lime. The crisp, bright acidity in Edna Valley Sauvignon Blanc makes it a perfect pairing for a creamy chicken penne pasta.
