Grown Folk Talk: Enjoying Every Moment, One Sip at a Time

by Notorious Spinks on 11.16.2012

A perfect evening for me includes a a good book, a glass of wine and quiet.  In that order.

California Wine Club Review

Of course, I jumped at the opportunity to sample wines from The California Wine Club.  You see, every month they send members two bottles to sample.  If you absolutely love the selection, then you can order more bottles.  Genius.

Now I’m not wine connoisseur, but I can appreciate a good bottle or two or three.  There is something like gulping sipping the wine and swishing it around in your mouth before swallowing it.  It makes for a good hobby.  Not to mention it makes me interact with the characters in the book.  Before you know it, we’ve created this bond and I’m offering the main character  a glass of wine because it’s clear she needs a glass too.  Just drama I tell you, lol!

California Wine Monthly

Back to the wine.  The November selection from the California Wine Club is the Sauvignon Blanc and the Temprarillo along with the Uncorked newsletter.

The Temprarillo reminds me of my birth stone, the ruby, with it’s rich and bright in color.  Not to mention the scents of cinnamon and spice that remind me that fall is here along with the beautiful leaves that fall.  I enjoyed this wine with a homemade veggie pizza and loved how the aromas of the wine mixed with the herbs from the pizza.  Just magical.

Then there is the Sauvignon Blanc.  As the liquid hit my tongue, they began to french kiss.  It was something about the richness of this wine that went well with my spicy taco salad.  And then there was the aromas of honeysuckle and mango that went well with my homemade peach and mango salsa.  Mmmm!

If you’re looking for a unique and different gift this holiday season then consider a membership to the California Wine Club.  These award-winning wines were delicious and simply remind you to enjoy the moment, every moment.

Make sure you stop by next month to see what goodies the California Wine Club send me. In the mean time visit them their website, Twitter and Facebook.

This review was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own. I received a 2 month Membership to the California Wine Club for the purpose of this review.
