I’d love to try and pull off a ‘oh really, boxed wine is so beneath me’, but seriously, Strawberry Boones is still one of my favorites. How can you resist kool-aid wine?
I bought Barrel Box California Cabernet Sauvignon because it was about $7, is the equivalent of 4 bottles, and I remembered that I had tasted something Barrel Box and liked it. It is really very good. The box states “juicy cherry and berry flavors and hints of toasted vanilla”. I do taste dark berry flavor, and a lot of other subtle flavors that I can’t name, but try as I will I do not taste vanilla. Which is probably a good thing considering how much I like vanilla. I’d have to change my blog name to wanna be wino for sure.
The best thing about this wine? The box says it stays fresh for up to 4 weeks. I opened the box I have 2 weeks ago, and so gar so good. It tastes like I just opened it. I wish all wine stayed fresh like that!
On to yet another the best part. I was trying to find a web site for the wine or who made it, but failed. In the process I found this site:
I could be a wine snob and still drink wine from a box!!! Even better, because I’d be pretending to drink it from a BARREL, which must be even better than a bottle since I’ve never tried it. You know you want one!
