Boxed Wine Anyone?

Wine: Bota Box Old Vine Zin and Pinot Grigio

Mood: Mellow

I may be breaking all kinds of rules here with some of you, but I'm just now discovering boxed wine.  I think it may be my new thing to try.  I am the only wine drinker in my house hold and as a result, I don't open wine much these days.  I don't like the pressure of having to drink it quickly, before it oxidizes.  The boxed wine solves that!  It's an anaerobic pouch in the box, so little to no oxygen get's in contact with the wine.  

We went on vacation with the family and we tried the Bota Box wine.  We got the Old Vine Zin and the Pinot Grigio.  I thought they were both what I'd call, "good everyday drinking" wine.  Both varietally correct, meaning I'd be able to tell you that they were Old Vine Zin and Pinot Grigio, even if I didn't know and it's tough to beat the price.  The convenience of the shelf life alone is enough of a reason for me to continue my exploration.  

Pretty fun summer experiment, if I do say so myself!
