I admit, I love a great bottle of wine.  It seems like ever since I have had children my drink of preference changed from beer to wine.  I am more of a red wine drinker – a good glass of Merlot or Cabernet is such a treat for me.  That being said, I am clueless on what wine to buy when I go to the store.  If I can remember brands I have tried I usually just buy those, but I do like being adventurous and trying new ones.  This is one of the reasons I was so excited to be a part of the Holiday Campaign with California Wine Club.

It was so cool when I received a shipment of wine right to my front door.  My first shipment contained wine from the Robledo Family Winery: a Seven Brothers 2009 Napa Valley Tempranillo and a Seven Brothers 2008 Lake County Sauvignon Blanc.  I am not much of a white wine drinker so I was a little nervous about the Sauvignon Blanc, but I was very interested in trying out the Tempranillo.

Since the Sauvignon Blanc was the bottle I was most nervous about, let me start with that one.  I was very impressed with this wine. It had a bit of a fruity taste to it.  I caught the very distinct aromas of mangos, citrus and a sweet floral scent.  I had brought this bottle of wine with me to a neighbor who was have a small Halloween get together after trick-or-treating.  White wine is her preferred wine, and she was very impressed with the taste as well.

The Tempranillo, I admit I kept for myself!  This is a dry red wine, which fit in perfectly to the types of reds normally drink.  The Tempranillo is made with a variety of black grape widely grown to make full-bodied red wines in its native Spain.  It has a beautiful rich ruby color that offered hints of cranberry, blackberry, toasted cedar, cinnamon, as well as black fruit, which sent my taste buds into over load because it was so delicious!

Being a California Wine Club Member has so many great benefits.  Here are just a few of those benefits:

  • You get to try smaller, award-winning wineries
  • Convenient, “to your door” delivery
  • No more guessing

Also, with each of your orders you get a copy of their newsletter “Uncorked”.  In the newsletter you will find more detailed information about the wines that are chose for that month as well as what types of foods they pair best with.  Also, if you decide to not drink one of the bottles immediately, it will also tell you its shelf-life.

This, I believe, is such an amazing gift for anyone who enjoys wine.  I am super impressed so far with what I have received and cannot wait to see what is in my shipment for next month!
