This post is dedicated to a certain aunt of mine that has been slow to come off the box...the wine box, that is. Lets call her Aunt X. It is no secret that my family (especially my mom's side) is a bunch of bonafide winos. You know, it is good for the heart. We've all done it. At some point or another, you can think back to a time when you looked in your fridge and saw a gallon of milk, leftovers from the night before, some fruit, and a box of wine front and center. However, there comes a point when you forego the box and graduate to the bottle. You may even start to care about what notes it has and the vintage. All sounds so fancy, right? Well, Aunt X couldn't let go of the box. She was always given a hard time, but she stood loyal. Now Aunt X can throw in our face because watch out, boxed wine is back. Apparently, the new trend is all about the box. Less waste, stays fresher, and more cost efficient. I was skeptical, but I figured it I would give it whirl and be the guinea pig for all my wine lovers. Plus, our family is huge and all my millions of cousins are becoming of age to drink so it seems that we are having to buy a lot more wine then we used to. Even though it doesn't seem as refined, the lack of cork and pour spout are pretty convenient. I think I may even use it at my next Bunco. It gets pricey to keep those ladies fueled with the golden grape. And so it goes, I decided to try Bota Box Cabernet Sauvignon. Its actually not that bad. It almost tastes like a wine that has been open for a day, no bite, just smooth. One box equals three 750mL bottles of wine and will stay fresh for up to a month (like wine lasts that long in this house) and is roughly $18/box. At the average price of $6/bottle for wine that doesn't taste like rot gut moonshine, I give this a definite thumbs ups. Winos everywhere (especially Aunt X) rejoice!!
