I got my second shipment from my 3-month Premier Club gift membership from the California Wine Club. You can connect with them at @cawineclub @boringwineguy and The California Wine Club and The Boring Wine Guy’s on Facebook. This month is was from Castoro Cellars.
I received a 2010 Blind Faith Pinot Noir ~ Paso Robles from San Miguel, California. I am always partial to the pinot noirs and I have never had one I did not like. I was not disappointed by the intense flavor that paired very well with my prime rib. It is nice to be offered a variety of wines without having to guess which one is good. So far all of the red wines I have received from the California wine club have been superb. I also would not have ever had tried these brands so it was nice to expand my palette.
The newsletter they send is very informative and is chock full of wine tips and information about the wineries. This is included with every shipment. You can also get food and wine pairing tips directly to your iPhone with the new app they have. Just text WINE to 88-202 or go to the app store and type in CWC Food and Wine Pairing App. Then you will instantly be able to pick the perfect wine for your meal no matter where you are at!
I also received a Paso Robles ~ Gewurztraminer that I did not open. I am not partial to rose wines at all. I did not want to ruin a good bottle of wine by opening it and dumping it, so I am gifting it to my mother who is a rose fan. Next month they are sending holiday wines and I cannot wait to see what selections they send.
