Decanted Wine Review

Favorite Grape Wine Club - Big Reds Review


All-Around Wine Club Rating: This wine club is unrated


A quarterly selection of six big, bold red wines like Zinfandel, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon. If you eat a lot of meat or bbq, this is a great wine club for. You'll never be bored!

What We Like

There are a few other red wine clubs out there, but none that focus on the Big Bold Reds like Zinfandel and Syrah and those ever-intriguing red blends from all over the world.


An introductory offer would make this the most killer wine club we've seen recently.


This is no ordinary wine club. And it's not really for beginning wine drinkers. Decanted Wine has wine and beer clubs for more serious wine drinkers.

So many wine clubs are made to be somewhat inexpensive gifts (2 bottles a month, under $45, etc.). The Decanted Wine clubs are designed to please the sophisticate and the connoisseur. Decanted Wine wants to give you a wine club for you rather than a wine club that will please a general audience. This means you get special wines with nuance and that are characteristic of their varietal instead of merely "fruity, light, or dry."

Decanted Wine assumes you have some level of wine knowledge and what you'd like to spend each month (the maximum for the Grand Cru is $150 and the maximum for the Premier Cru is $300, but you could spend less if you choose to). This is pretty unique in the wine club business.

The Favorite Grape - Big Reds wine clubs focus on heavy red wines like Syrah, Zinfandel, and Blends. They have recently featured wines like these:

  • Turley Juvenile Zinfandel from Paso Robles, California
  • Darioush Shiraz from Napa Valley, California
  • Acha Red Wine from California
  • Arietta Claret from Napa Valley

This wine club gives you something you can't get easily anywhere else... high-quality wines you are likely to love and probably never could have found or purchased on your own.

We give Decanted Wine an enthusiastic thumbs up!
