Bota Box Shiraz 2009
Not much aroma, ok taste. This costs the equivalent of $4.60 per bottle, which is more than the $2.75 per bottle of Oak Leaf Shiraz I normally buy at Walmart. I prefer the Oak Leaf to this Bota. Time will tell if the freshness advantage of the box is worth the premium.Add winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Previously, I have had a good experience with Bota wines. The Shiraz 2009 tastes almost artificial, almost infused with too much vanilla. Disappointing.
