Wine Review: 2016 Pinot Noir, Bota Box

img_0249

I usually like Pinot Noir, and I wanted to like this one, I really did.

But I didn’t.

Hard to put a finger on exactly what it is. The box says something about tasting like cola. They call it cola, I call it unfortunate.

Something mid palate hits all the wrong notes.

But that’s just me. Xavier thought it was alright. He drank more of it than I did but we ended up throwing part of it away in favor of something better.

The blessing and the curse of boxed wine is that it comes in large quantities.

I’m generally a fan of Bota Box but won’t be buying this Pinot Noir again.  On the other hand, the RedVolution and Nightkawk Black are both very good!

  1. I’ve tried a few boxed wines but none of them are memorable. I have since given up. I think it’s a great idea, boxed wines. But it seems it is only being used for less costly wines, perhaps to save on the cost of bottling them.
