I shared my experience with California Wine Club with you a few months back. I case you forgot, I liked the shipment quite a lot. They have now gifted me a 3 month membership. So I am going to share with you what came in this month (I am receiving the red/white combo, but they offer 2 white or 2 red, if that is what you prefer). These shipments would be wonderful to have on hand during the holidays, and would of course make a lovely gift [Don’t miss the special reader discount below]
This month’s featured winery is Perry Creek Vineyards. The winery located in fair Play California, specializes in Zinfandel (one of my fave wines), but also produces quality white wines too.
Their signature wine is the Zinfandel called “Zinman”, so I was glad this one was included in my shipment. It is an easy to drink red wine, with nice berry & chocolate flavor. I could taste the oak aging in it, but it was not at all overpowering. This is one of those wines that would go with so many different foods. It can handle a spicy ethnic dinner and go right through to a chocolatey dessert. Now that’s flexibility! I am not surprised at all that this wine has won several awards, and was classified as a Best Buy, from Wine Spectator. I would get this one again.
The second wine in the shipment was the Perry Creek Chardonnay. It had a bit of mixed tropical fruit flavor, but I didn’t actually pull out individual fruit flavors on this one. The alcohol content in this one also tasted more present than in many chardonnays I’ve had. A good drinkable wine, but not a personal fave. That is the great thing about a shipment like this though, trying out new wines, so you know what you like.
The California Wine Club makes tasting wine an easy and enjoyable experience, that you can have right in your own home. Each moth the club sends 2 bottles from a small California winery, nicely packaged to ensure no broken bottles. An informative magazine is included with each shipment, which tells you about the producing winery, the family that runs it and information about the wines themselves. If you have never experienced small estate wines before, you’re sure to be surprised at how distinctive they each are, and knowing about the people that made your wine, adds a little to the enjoyment, as well.
