Look what I received in the mail!
Who among us doesn't enjoy getting a surprise in the mail. This letter and enclosed magnet was unexpected and very welcomed. Since trying out the Black Box Wine when they sent me a lovely generous sample of Sauvignon Blanc (which I wrote about here) we enjoyed that box with chicken chausser, grilled fish and a great pasta dish with clam sauce.
This magnet is attractive and does a dynamic job of holding lists and such aloft on the side of the fridge. No better magnet exists, in my opinion...but I am an Ambassador of Black Box Wine!
We knew we'd buy more of this wine as it was pleasant on the palate, affordable and good for people who don't necessarily need to put down one entire bottle of wine at one sitting.
Funny because once a bottle is gone, you hear Joseph Conrad's faint cry of The horror, the horror......no, I digress :D
We saw the wine stocked at, of all places, a local WalMart, and did not purchase it on sight. We were sorry because it appeared to be pulled from the shelves. We thought we'd have to go on a hunt for the box in prep of Autumn meal planning. A nice pinot or shiraz. Oh, you can't go wrong with a cab.
And then...to our great satisfaction, when we stopped to grab some ice cream, there was a small display of the Black Box wine - Cabernet sauvignon. Perfect.
I'm saving this box for a coq au vin or maybe a cassoulet.........we'll see. If you have not tried this boxed wine I would say give it shot. Everyone's taste is different obviously, but we have tried boxed wines before and didn't care for them. Until this one. This was a good price too> :-)
I'll let you know how the Cabernet tastes...........
