Not the typical syrupy sweet stuff, this Wahluke Slope Cabernet based blend raises the bar for boxed wine. The Gratsi Old Country Red Box Wine.
Sample submitted for review. The wine has an SRP of $45 for a 3 liter (3L) box, which is the equivalent of $11.25 per 750ml bottle.
An everyday, easy-drinking Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Fruity and dry with balanced acidity and tannins, refreshing and versatile. Dark cherries, soft spices, subtle oak.
Cellared and Bottled by Golden Hills
The Gratsi Old Country Red Box Wine opens with pleasing aromas of black cherry and other dark berries, licorice and touches of spice.
What's this, a dry wine in a box? (And from the Wahluke Slope no less.) I love it. Soft, smooth and fruity with nice touches of spice this is very drinkable blend, which is just what you want for a box wine.
It ends dry with lingering sweet tasting fruit in this very dry wine and just a touch of tobacco and smokiness underneath. It's a good thing this comes in a box because this is crowd pleasing stuff.
