There is so much wrong with this wine that I really just need to rant. This is the type of wine you send to your enemies. People you hate. There are decent box wines out there, and there’s a time and a place to get it. There’s NO time or place for Wine Cube. So lets just get into it.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir are great grapes, and they produce wonderful wine. But even with good grapes, you get what you pay for. There’s a rare occasion when you can find a decent gem from the $5-$10 range, but when it comes in what looks like a child’s juice box, that’s a BIG RED FLAG this isn’t going to be a gem.
The cabernet sauvignon was drinkable. I’ll give it that. But it was very one dimensional and there wasn’t much to it. Where things really fell apart was with the Pinot Noir. The color looked identical to the cab sauv, it smelled of butt cheese, and tasted almost identical to the cab sauv, with minor hints of unpleasantness, such as band-aids.
The best part of all of this is that the boxes claim this wine has won over 300+ awards! I don’t know what kind of marketing lie they came up with here, but this wine isn’t winning anything that accredited by anyone. They must make up their own awards to give themselves like Hollywood does.
Anyway, you can pick this up at target if you want. But you’re wasting your money.
