Campus Oaks Old Vine Zinfandel Has Arrived!

The California Wine Club came out with a special 10% off coupon code that also gave you shipping for only $1 and I took FULL ADVANTAGE of it by picking up a case of my favorite wine: Campus Oaks Old Vine Zinfandel from Lodi, California.

The California Wine Club did a great job at packing the case of wine to ensure there was absolutely no breakage on its journey from California to North Carolina, where I live these days. As you can read on our California Wine Club Review page, we’ve never received a damaged or broken bottle from the California Wine Club. Some wine clubs will actually use cheap cardboard when they ship you your wines. I’m happy to report that just isn’t the case with the California Wine Club.

As with all shipments from the California Wine Club, the first thing you’ll find when you open up your box is their usual promotional material. Sometimes they include coupon codes that will save you up to 30% off your next purchase. These promo codes are NOT available anywhere else online…unless I’ve posted them to my website that is 😉 I definitely recommend that use one of these California Wine Club Coupons anytime you plan on making a purchase from the California Wine Club.

After you receive your shipment from the California Wine Club, or any of the wine clubs we recommend, be sure to let the bottles settle for a while before opening them. The reasoning behind this is that they most likely are suffering from bottle shock and the wine inside won’t taste as good as it would if you let it sit for a couple of days. I used to work at UPS and I can tell you this, packages are THROWN onto trucks because loaders are encouraged to be FAST not careful. So, always give your bottles a couple of days to settle before enjoying them.

The reason why I love the Campus Oaks Old Vine Zinfandel so much is because this delicious red wine is produced and bottled by Gnekow Family Winery which hand selects grapes from their 80+ year old vines. It’s one of my favorite all time wines because its got a wonderful fruit forward nose of cherries and raspberries, complemented by a jammy mid-palate of mixed berries with just a hint of vanilla wrapped up in oak, ending with a delightfully silky smooth finish. And don’t forget to couple it with some aged cheddar cheese and some salty crackers for the most amazing flavor experience ever! :-)

So, in summary, when you’re ready to make your wine purchases for the holidays and your wine gift purchases, be sure to get your wines from the California Wine Club.

Cheers!
