California Wine Club Review #2

Since 1990, club owners Bruce and Pam Boring have traveled California's wine country searching for limited-production wines from small, family-owned wineries dedicated to the art of making fine wine. Whether for yourself or a gift, CWC membership is an adventure in wine tasting that will not be experienced anywhere else.

They journey not only to Napa and Sonoma, but to less-explored wine regions like Santa Barbara, Monterey, the Sierra Foothills and beyond.

Membership costs nothing, you can cancel anytime, and every wine is 100% guaranteed.

More than three-quarters of California's 3,500+ wineries are small, boutique, mom-and-pop operations whose wines never travel beyond their local markets and private customer lists. Come discover them with us!

With Christmas right around the corner, I know a lot of you are still trying to find that perfect gift.  If you have wine lovers on your list, you should really consider The California Wine Club.

I received two shipments of wine to review.  My second shipment consisted of a 2009 Merlot and a 2011 Chenin Blanc.

Now I will never claim to be a wine connoisseur, but my years working at the Olive Garden and pairing wines with food gave me some knowledge!!

The Merlot has a complex blend of cranberry, blueberry and black cherry flavors.  It is a silky wine that should be drunk as a appetizer because it is so smooth.

The Chenin Blanc has a peach or pear (its hard to tell) and honey taste to it.  To me this is a desert wine that I would pair with something creamy like an ice cream.

Both wines were very tasty.  We enjoyed sipping them with our meals.  It was a nice treat.
