You all know how I love a good boxed wine. And I hate to admit how frequently I resort of tried-and-true standbys without exploring the wide variety on offer. When HEB ran out (how could they possibly run out?) of my usual standby boxed red, I decided to pick up a recommendation from one of you find readers.
Bota Box is produced by Delicato and is surprisingly highly rated for boxed wine. In fact, the deciding factor to pick up this box was not only its availability and price, but the fact that it boasts 94 points in bold print, right on the front of the box. So, I thought, can’t go wrong, why not. So I bought it.
And that’s how I found my new house boxed wine. It’s fruity without being sweet, true to Cabernet character, and highly drinkable all on its own. You’re just gonna love it.
Find it at your grocer for about $15 for a 3L box – that’s roughly $3.75 per bottle. Not bad at all.
