Does this wine 101er get her long-overdue justification for drinking wine out of a box over 25 years ago? Or is the current incarnation , the WS 87pt WINE CUBE AVAILABLE ONLY AT TARGET, (as it’s their brand) have something special to offer:
MaryAnn Worobiec’s Recommended California Sauvignon Blancs (Tasting Report, WS, Aug. 31, 2009) describes a wine, simply called WINE CUBE I kid you not, as: Bright and refreshing, with smooth mouthwatering Key lime, quince, pepper and passion fruit flavors on a light body.
I don’t usually run out to buy WS 87 pt. wines. But this one caught my eye as the price of $17 had a little notation underneath that did: 3L. Three liters of Sauvignon Blanc for $17!
Again, it only scored an 87, above at least 4 more recommendations that rounded off the list.
I’m thinking fast now. I didn’t know squat about wine then. I am slightly more squat-less now. But hear me out. Didn’t know about wines needing to be fresh then, now I know that opening a wine introduces oxygen and breaks down my living breathing thing.
My wine in a cube, with the deflating bag inside, would prevent air from entering.
So now I’m at Target.com trying to find, buy and taste for myself. If you have found/tasted this cube, or a really really really good box on your own let me know. Wine snobs, turn away, this is a wine 101 party.
