We at the wine club reviews got to taste several wines offered at the Plonk wine club boxes and were very much impresses with the wines we tasted. Some of our favorites were the Fableist Cabernet sauvignon 2017 red wine from Paso Robles , central coast in California. This wine was dense, juicy, with so much personality and true pleasure to the mouth. Another wine we loved was Zorzettig Friulano 2017 from northern Italy, which had some spritzy or lemony zest to it. This wine is made of the Friulano grape (didn’t we tell you that Plonk wine club is going way and beyond to bringing exciting and less common grape types.
