Kobe & Cabernet Club Review - Membership Has its Privileges

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

When it comes to food-and-wine pairings, American Kobe (Wagyu) beef matched with an intensely flavored Cabernet Sauvignon is nothing short of impeccable.  The combination of a full bodied Cabernet with deep, concentrated flavor in combination with a fine-cut grade of this succulent, buttery beef is an exquisite epicurean experience like none other.

 

Fortunately, this luxury food and wine fete is not relegated to fine dining establishments. In fact, Napa Valley's estate winery Signorello Estate and Snake River Farms, America's leading producer of Kobe (Wagyu) beef, are jointly offering this genius gastronomic experience at home with the Kobe & Cabernet Club.

A natural marriage of two rare and highly sought after tastes, the Kobe & Cabernet Club offers culinary devotees, oenophiles and others with discriminating palatesa spectacular gourmet encounter at three key times of the year: winter holiday celebrations, Valentine's Day, and Father's Day.

In time for these holidays, those blessed enough to be Kobe & Cabernet Club members will receive the most select, finest grade raw cuts of American Kobe (Wagyu) beef along with thoughtfully paired Signorello's Estate Cabernet Sauvignons not available to the general public. Members also receive recipes and other key ingredients to create the ultimate savory holiday dinner not soon forgotten - all delivered directly to their, or a lucky gift recipient's, front door.

Kobe & Cabernet Club members enjoy exclusive access to the high quality Signorello Estate Padrone and the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon wines, among others only available to club constituents. These wines, grown exclusively on Signorello's singular hillside estate along the Silverado Trail just south of the Stags Leap District, include Meta (50 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 50 percent Syrah), East Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon (100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon) and Uvaggio (34 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 33 percent Merlot and 33 percent Cabernet Franc).

The delectable holiday-pegged packages each average $390 with actual price based on shipment and size. For its part, the winter holiday package includes one Rib Eye Roast (6-8 pounds, serving 8-10 people) and one bottle each of the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Padrone (Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon) and Meta. I've personally sampled this particular package, opting for the roasting versus grilling preparation, and can assure you this is beef at its best: exquisitely marbled and intensely tender and flavorful.  The wine pairings make this meal other-worldly.

The Valentine's Day and Father's Day packages are equally delightful. They can vary each year, but all, of course, boast different forms of this coveted beef and wine combination. 

Kobe & Cabernet Club members also receive a number of other distinctive benefits, including discounts on all Signorello wine and Snake River Farms purchases throughout the year, access to Signorello Estate very special Padrone and wines made exclusively for Wine Club members, special recipes pairing Kobe (Wagyu) beef with Signorello wines, free tastings at Signorello Estate for members and up to three guests, and newsletters and emails regarding winery news and event updates. Also included are invitations to special members-only events at the winery and to exclusive Kobe & Cabernet winemaker dinners throughout the country.

In my erudite estimation, this is one club well worth the price of admission.
