Black Box Shiraz 2010
Shiraz, or Syrah as it's often called in the U.S., is the classic red grape of France's northern Rhone Valley. Our 2006 Shiraz is from California's famed Central Coast wine growing region. We chose this region because it allows us to offer our customers the highest quality wine at the best possible value. Shiraz is a wine known for its spicy, full bodied character. Our Shiraz "displays aromas of fresh blackberry, cherry and floral notes with hints of pepper and wood spice. A lush texture, with subtle tannins and notes of vanilla and toasted oak, lead to a soft and supple finish."
Upside: This wine hits its target. I can see why it'd sell well to those interested in an easy-drinking red wine...slightly sweet, very purple, hardly any mouthfeel. It is an excellent party wine. Downside: 6 grams/liter sugar. I'm still looking for a boxed wine that isn't meant for non-winedrinkers. Any structure it may have is hidden by the RS. Not once did I lose track of the fact that I was drinking something out of a juice box.
