This delightful Pinot Noir made by the Masters family in California is the perfect red to serve for Easter.  Supple, charming, medium-bodied and delicious, it will not only be a crowd pleaser, but it will also pair well with traditional dishes such as spiral ham, pork tenderloin, leg of lamb or roasted turkey. Pinot Noir is a delicate grape variety that requires optimum growing conditions so the Masters' are careful to source fruit from the best vineyards.  60% comes from the Clarksburg region where the clay and loam soils coupled with the cool weather of the Sacramento Delta balances the acidity and the fruit. 40% is from Monterey with its sunshine, Pacific winds and Santa Lucia Mountain influence.  Look for violets, red berries, cherries and vanilla. Aged 12 months in French oak, pair with salmon, chicken, sushi rolls and cheeses in addition to 'Easter' fare, and its handy screwcap makes it super convenient for large family gatherings.
