Swa-Rai Review: California Wine Club x Robledo Family Winery

 Ok, I know what you’re thinking….. (I thought she was the SneakerDiva, now she reviews wine?) My answer is yes! There are so many sides of me that you wouldn’t even believe! I could write a review on music, movies, food, books, sports, and art! I’m a renaissance woman! I do it all! I consider myself to be a wine lover. I can identify aromas and flavors at an intermediate level. So for wine reviews you can call me Farrah Monroe.

Now that I’ve addressed your concerns here’s my review of two wines from The Robledo Family Winery…

(Right – Left: Sauvignon Blanc & Tempranillo)

 Robledo – Sauvignon Blanc – Lake County – The Seven Brothers – 2008

Fine blend of tart apples, citrus, melon, and vanilla flavors. The intense tart apple tones linger in the finish of this wine.  This wine is an acquired taste similar to a Merlot.  This Sauvignon Blanc is definitely for the real connoisseur’s of wine.  Has a very refined and bold taste.  I found it to be very intriguing and mysterious.  This wine would be paired well with your favorite Mexican or Southwestern dish.  I wouldn’t recommend this wine to anyone who is not looking for something complex.

Robledo – Tempranillo – Napa Valley – The Seven Brothers – 2009
This wine has a beautiful color of ruby red with wonderful scents of berries & cinnamon. The flavors of blackberry’s and tart plums come to palate.  This wine reminds me autumn; my favorite season.  I felt grown and sexy while I enjoyed a glass with a steak and grilled veggies and it went down wonderfully.  Before I knew it I was sipping another glass alone.  This wine will allow you to get lost in it.  I really enjoyed this wine very much. Very nice wine!

These wines were sent to me for review courtesy of California Wine Club! Not familiar with California Wine Club? It’s a club that sends 2 bottles of award-winning wine and our detailed and beautiful 12-page, full color publication, Uncorked for only $49.95 a month! Stay tuned next month to see what they send over and to find out how you can win your very own certificate to California Wine Club  for more details go here!

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.
