This month the California Wine Club delivered two bottles of hearty red wines to my doorstep. I got to try the Le Vigne Winery 2007 Kiara Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and the Le Vigne Winery 2007 Kiara Private Reserve Zinfandel. Both are award-winning wines, and I can see why. They both changed my standard opinion on their varietals. See that? I even learn new words doing product reviews!!
I like a good Cabernet, but I often find them better with food. Specifically a nice juicy steak. This Cabernet, however, was so smooth that I enjoyed it alone. I drank it with a friend one crisp, chilly evening. I would totally order this again.
The Zinfandel, though, was the true surprise. I have never liked Zinfandel, or so I thought. I have always found it to have too strong of a taste. But this? Was like butter. NO WONDER it has won so many awards. Unfortunately I didn’t get a photo. My camera was out of battery. Boo. I would buy a whole case of that Zinfandel, that is how much I liked it.
