Negroamaro

HB4116What a romantic, mysterious name for an equally romantic and mysterious wine.

A VINEBOX treat.

Deeply red, nearly opaque, I caught cherry/raspberry on the aroma, but couldn’t nail down anything specific on the palate.  Maybe my lack of experience, maybe I’m having an off night, but I got smooth fruit.  Not too tart, and full of body and flavor. A nice flavor, but it was all fruit to me.

HB4116As per accompanying infocard: “Negroamaro boasts baked raspberry, ripe plum, and spice-cabinet notes like anise and cinnamon.” 🤷🏾‍♀️ I’ll take their word for it.

Either way, I enjoyed it. I could buy a whole bottle and drink it with my lover, while staring into his eyes.  There was something seductive about the smoothness and ambiguousness of flavors.  Get you some at VINEBOX, my link gets you $10 off your first order!

A beautiful bouquet…

HB4116HB4116I rated this one ⭐⭐⭐/5.

Once upon a VINEBOX, I read the info cards and one told a tale of rose petals and fresh menthol. Completely puzzled, I unscrewed the cap and took a whiff.  Sure enough, the beautiful smell of rose filled my nostrils.  Always the classy lady, I poured this dark red vial into a glass and swirled some more, sniffing to my little hearts content.

When it came time to taste, the faint rose aroma gave way to a medium bodied, pruny delight that, as promised, finished with a hint of mint.  I found this to be a plot twist for the worst. I’m not a huge fan of mint in my food, but I read this wine would be amazing with a lamb dish.

My first Müller-Thurgau

From VINEBOX, no less, and boy, did it not disappoint at all.

Smooth, fruity, and not so sweet, but mellow enough to enjoy alone.  My friends (in the head) at VINEBOX said it paired well it a good bag of potato chips.  Perfect for a lightweight like me who absolutely *needs* to snack while wining.  I’m getting my hands on some more, because my friends have *got* to try this.

I really wanna admit how obsessed I am with the packaging from VINEBOX and it was bittersweet cracking this guy open.  I have more coming in a few weeks (what did you expect?), so I’m just making room 😁.
