Platinum Wine Club: Details & Selections Of The Month

For our 20th anniversary we created the Platinum Wine Club, allowing you to explore the world of wine 2 bottles at a time. We give you a wine you probably know (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay) and then one that’s off the wall, something you would probably never pick up on your own and to take you out of your comfort zone. We have done a Txakoli from Spain, a Claret from the Columbia Valley & a Gamay Beaujolais rose from Burgundy, to name a few. You can also structure the Platinum Wine Club to fit your needs! You get a sheet, explaining the wines, where they are from, tasting notes and food pairings too.  Here’s how it works:
 
The basic membership is 2 wines a month for $30.00.
You can also do 4 wines a month for $60.00
You can just do a 2 bottle, 3 month membership for $90.00, payable in advance. The same applies for 4 bottles for $180.00, payable in advance.
You can pay for 6 months in advance and get 1 month free
You can pay for 12 months in advance and get 2 months free
You can do a quarterly membership too. Getting 2 or 4 bottles a month every 3 months (4 times a year)
If you like the wines and want to pay more, you can purchase them, during the month they are featured at a 10% discount. 
You can pay as you go, and cancel at anytime.

 

Platinum Wine Club Reds May 2020

The Wine you Know:  Lander-Jenkins 2018 California Cabernet. This one is a deal for wine club members. Regularly $16.99, wine club members get it for $12.99

Before they were Rutherford Ranch, the great-grandfather, Rees T. Jenkins, ranched and farmed in Lander, Nevada. All farming was done ‘the natural way’. Today, despite modern agricultural short-cuts, they still do things ‘the natural way’. Because it’s best for the land and the grapes and essential to crafting the finest, most flavorful wines. They are now in their 3rd generation of winemaking.

Tasting Notes: You get bright aromas of Bing cherry, smoky tobacco and luscious blackberry. Silky, medium-bodied with elegant flavors of blackberry, layered flavors of coffee and toasted marshmallow and subtle hints of cherry.

Food Pairing: dry rub Barbeque, portabella mushrooms, Wagyu beef burger, short ribs, DARK chocolate, aged cheddar, gouda, blues cheese & gorgonzola.

The Wine you don’t know: Casa Silva Carmenere $15.99

I liked this one so much, I bought it all! Carmenere has a history in Chile. For centuries, it was thought to be Merlot, and only after DNA tests did, they find it was the French grape Carmenere. Carménère is considered part of the original six red grapes of Bordeaux. Now rarely found in France, the world’s largest area planted with this variety is in Chile

Tasting notes: Bright and intense ruby red. On the nose, aromas of black cherries and plums with hints of spices. On the palate, it is round and powerful with sweet soft tannins and balanced acidity. Long finish.

Food Pairings: Spicy Mexican dishes and Thai food, Bacon, Lamb, green olives and curry

The wine you know: Dipinit Pinot Grigio $12.99

Traditionally referred to as Mommy Juice, in the industry, much like other wines that aren’t taken to seriously, it can be quite lovely when you take the time to find on that’s good. Pinot grigio comes from an ancient vine, originally cultivated in Alsace and grown today in the hillside of Lavis, Gardolo and Trento. The vines are20-25 years old, (old vine Pinot Grigio, who knew!)

Tasting notes: Delicately perfumed with scents of flowers and spice, it features almond, tangerine and apricot fruits. Softly textured and balanced with a crisp citrus finish.

Food Pairing: A delicious aperitif or pair with seafood and salads.
