Black Box California Merlot 2007
Well, I really didn't want to like this wine, simply because it was in a box (actually it's in a bag, in a box). But, the truth is... I did. It has a freshness that is not easy to find these days in an everyday wine. It's touted to stay fresh for four weeks.
Aromas of blackberries, raspberries, cedar, violets with hints of fresh baked pastries. Flavors are fruit forward with cherries, milk chocolate, and a fairly smooth creamy cherry finish.
The box holds 3 liters of wine, the equivalent of 4 bottles and retails for $24, 13.5% alcohol.
