Taste The California Coast with In Good Taste Wines!

Imagine getting to taste the California Coast for $65! Well, if you would like to from the comfort of your own home, you can, with In Good Taste Wines! This company is perfect for those who can’t travel but want to taste a range of wines from some of the top areas including Napa Valley and Sonoma.

When you order, you will receive a box of eight wines, 6oz in each bottle. Easily this is enough if you wanted to make it into a date night and share it with someone too! I had such a fun time tasting around California, starting with the buttery, fruity chardonnay’s, and then moving into a fun rosé, before ending with the delicious and seductive reds. California wines are always popular, and now with everything going on in the world, if you don’t want to travel, you don’t have to. With In Good Taste Wines, you can even chat and take a tour with some of the winery teams, and book a virtual tasting with your kit!

Never has it been so easy to taste eight wines in one night, without having to open full bottles or take out the coravin. This tasting kit delivers some fantastic wines, all very palate friendly, and perfectly portioned. Some of my favorites from the kit included:

2019 La Pluma Sauvignon Blanc- I always love a good SB from California because they express tropical fruit and some great acidity! This wine has attractive lemon and grapefruit notes, followed by a clean finish. Overall it’s a really delicious white from the Central Coast, to enjoy this summer!

2019 La Pluma Rosé- California rosé holds a special place in my heart, so I had a feeling I would love this wine. I love the fruitness and coastal climate flavors California terroir brings to wines. This rosé is delicious and fun, from Mendocino County, and is made from Sangiovese grapes! It’s a dry wine with playful bubblegum and strawberry notes. This wine was a winner in the lineup for me!

2018 Stealing Thunder Syrah- Another California grape I am obsessed with! Then again, I am always into Syrah’s, and this one was wonderful! The syrah is hand-harvested in Mendocino and has striking notes of smoke and deep berries. It’s a delicious wine that’s ideal for summer nights!

2018 Balance of Powers Red Blend- A bold field blend wine from Sonoma, with notes of cherry,  blackberry, and oak. This wine is alluring with nice ripe fruit and smooth tannins that lead to a really wonderful finish. This wine is ideal for BBQ and grilled vegetables!

2018 Fortune Favors Cabernet Sauvignon- A California Cabernet is always a great idea. They are easy to drink and pair-able with so many cuisine options. This wine is bold from Paso Robles, with nice oak notes, tobacco, and dark fruit. It has a nice long finish making it ideal for summer nights by the firepit!

 

If you’re looking for a wine tour you can do yourself, or with friends and family virtually, be sure to check out In Good Taste! I had so much fun with the kit, and it was nice being able to taste by area of one state. You really get a good sense of California wines with this tasting tour.

Always remember, eat what you like and drink what you love. Please pair responsibly!
