I recently received a shipment from the California Wine Club, a club specializing in hand-selected artisan wines from family-owned producers, which contained the 09 Trenza Winery Santa Barbara County Mourvedre-Syrah-Grenache and the 10 Tangent Winery San Luis Obispo Viognier.
We started with the Viognier, which had notes of melon, citrus, apricot and a bit of Fig Newton. This was a well balanced wine with good acidity and priced at $17. The red blend was full of berries, chocolate, mocha, oak and vanilla. It went very well with our dinner and was food friendly.
The $50 per month price tag includes shipping, accompanying information about the wines and winery and recipes to complete your tasting experience.
If you want to give it a try, the California Wine Club is offering Dallas Wine Chick readers four bottles for the price of 2 when you sign up. Use the code vine12 at checkout.
Disclosure: This review was made possible by Mom Spark Media and was valued at $50 for the shipment.
