  • Bota Box Chardonnay 2011


    This was my first try of boxed wine. Overall, it is drinkable, but I'm a bit disappointed. I'm not sure if the odd taste I'm getting is some flaw in the wine or if it has been in contact with the plastic bag for too long. Either way, I find the 95 rating listed on the box to be very unrealistic. I won't be dumping it, but I will be looking f... Read More

  • Delicato Family Vineyards Delicato Shiraz Bota Box 2008


    Lots of blackberry fruit. Beautiful purple color. Peppery on the top. Smooth tannin. Balanced acid. Just a hint of sweet on the tip of the tongue in this otherwise perfectly dry wine.Not the most complex shiraz, but it doesn't have to be for this price. The few flavors it has are crisp, delicious, and well defined. In fact, I gave it an extra ha... Read More

  • Bota Box Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


    I purchased a 500 mL Bota Box for $4 out of sheer curiosity, and the desire to answer the claim that "real" wines are coming in boxes now...After all, only junk wine comes in boxes, right? You know, that stuff they give fancy names like "Franzia" and "Almaden," yet constitute little more than fruit punch with a bit of alcohol in it? Who cares w... Read More

  • Bota Box Shiraz 2009


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

    Light and fruity with gentle chocolate, herb and spice notes. Very cherry, very plum pudding spice. A touch sweet, which gives this a decidedly lush feel. This flavors are a bit dark and a touch confected but with appealing brambly fruit tones. The tannins are soft but offer some nice support and add a very light astringent edge to the moderatel...

  • Bota Box Chardonnay 2011


    I've had this on two occasions, one 2008 and one 2009. Both times the wine was very fruity, with black fruit notes. After having the box sit in my fridge for weeks, I can attest that it stays fresh for extended periods of time, though after the first week or so it starts to taper off. Read More

    Strange green apple taste for the first few weeks which dissipated over time. Rather boring on the pallet but easy on the wallet. Will try their Shiraz before abandoning Bota. Read More
