We are now in December and the available shopping days are flying by. Seems like there are always a few names on my list that are always hard to gift for. If you are still searching for that perfect something, The California Wine Club might be the perfect solution!
This was my second month trying out the California Wine Club, check out my previous post, and this month was even festive! I was sent two bottles of Daniel Gehrs wine, a Merlot and Chenin Blanc, wrapped in red and silver foil for the holidays. I can imagine how fun this would be to receive as a gift this time of year.
I started out with Daniel Gerhs Merlot which is described as:
Dustiness, tanned leather and earthiness add complexity to the lush signature black cherry fruit. Tannins are smooth, lending backbone and a long finish.
This wine is ready to drink this holiday season and it can also age in the bottle for another three years or longer with proper storage.I used this wine not only with the meal but to marinate pork chops we smoked. It was lovely and really went well with the smoky pork.
The Chenin Blanc I am saving to share at an upcoming Christmas party, but it is described as:
Aromas of plums, wild flowers and clover honey lead to a fruity palate of ripe Barlett pear and melon flavors. The finish is crisp and zesty.
One of the perks of being a California Wine Club member is you can not only discover some great new wines and wineries, but you can easily re-order your favorites!
There is still plenty of time to give the gift of a California Wine Club membership...or treat yourself!
