Black Box Wines

Being a member of Foodbuzz is awesome. Look at the latest goodie I got from them - wine! Black Box Wine to be exact.

I know, I know, wine in a box? Ick! But this wasn't ick at all. In fact, it was pretty darn good.

I'm by no means a wine expert, so I'm not going to go into the hints of this and that that I detect or its floral notes, etc, but I am going to say that this makes a good table wine. It's not great, it's not bad, in fact it's a bit boring, but that's what I expect from table wines.

Plus it's super convenient because it's resealable, so if you don't want to finish a whole bottle, no problem, it keeps for at least a month! Keep it in the fridge and you can have a glass here and there any time you want. The opposite is also true though. You really have no idea how much you've had because you can't see in the black box, and before you know it, you've finished the box, which is the equivalent of 4 bottles! oops! I'll let you guess which scenario happened in this house :)

So if you're looking for a pretty good, affordable, convenient table wine, consider giving this a try.

Awesome!! Boxed wines get such a bad rap but they really are better than bottled in a lot of ways. They're cheaper and they store wine much better than any cork or wine saver do-hickey ever will! Enjoy your wine and I'll have to scope that out the next time I'm wine shopping!

box wine is one of those things that people think is going to be bad... but in reality the technology is better for keeping the wine in it's best tasting state... kinda like screw caps... they work better than cork... but everyone thinks it means it's cheep.
