Wine, Still The Perfect Gift Idea So, I’m Having a Giveaway

Noticing a theme here this week? WINE!!!! Even last month, I told you, it’s The Perfect Gift Idea

See, aside from just drinking wine because, why not? Obviously. You can also present it to those who love to spend time cooking great dishes up in the kitchen! Even me, wine drinker extraordinaire; I made this delicious Red Wine Marinated Flank Steak. It’s been the #1 favorite recipe on the blog EVER!! And just yesterday, I told you how to make an easy and elegant Chicken Marsala. Everyone should have a few good bottles on hand. For guests, for cooking and… because it’s Thursday.

Perfect Gift Idea California Wine Club

California Wine Club Sent Me The Perfect Gift Idea!

The 2 bottles I received this month from were just as amazing as last month’s! The red, was surprisingly amazing! And, I don’t say that often about reds! I received a 2009 Merlot by Daniel Gehrs (which is a 2x gold medal winner and silver winner) The Merlot offers “an aroma of black cherries, raspberries, and warm, tanned leather with hints of cranberry and blueberry”. Obviously goes great with any meat dish. Also, perfect on Thursdays!
The bottle of white was good. I think I liked last month’s white better personally. Not bad by any means. Not even a little. The 2011 Chenin Blanc by Daniel Gehrs (a gold, silver, and bronze medal winner!!) The Chenin Blanc “exhibits ripe pear, quince, wild flowers, and golden honey”. This is what I used to make the Chicken Marsala!

I really appreciate the time and attention owners Bruce & Pam put into selecting each and every bottle. You know they take great pride not only in their selections, but the awesome wine club overall. With 100% satisfaction guarantee and no cancellation charges, it really, really does make for the perfect gift idea. (email me for my address, happy to add myself to your gift list!)

If you are indeed sending this perfect gift idea to someone this year, (me??) I have a Shipping Alert!  Ground shipping deadline is December 12th.  Any orders placed after Dec 12th incur expedited air charges for Christmas deliveries.
