Review: Black Box Wine

I joined the website called BzzAgent after a friend pointed me to it.  Bzz Agent is a social marketing company.  They work with companies to share their products and get feedback on those products.  My first "campaign" experience was taste testing Black Box Wines.  I was asked to throw a taste testing party to get feedback on the product.  I received a rebate for a box or two of wine, $5 off coupons for everyone, magnets from the brand, tasting information, and some plastic wine glasses to use at the party.

I wanted to share my review of the wine for all of you.

I have always been very skeptical of boxed wines.  I've tried boxed reds in the past and was always turned off by the dryness of them.

I was apprehensive about trying Black Box wines, but I wanted to go ahead and give it a whirl.  I really enjoyed the Reisling.  It was nice and light without being overly sweet.  I think it is a great option for people who aren't into wine that much or who are just getting started or prefer white wines.

The red was okay, better than I had anticipated.  It wasn't quite as dry, but after the first few sips it tasted kind of like watered-down grape juice.  By that I mean there was no depth of flavor to me.  I would have liked to taste more notes throughout.

Considering the amount of wine you get for the price, I still think Black Box wine is a great value.  I'd buy it again, especially for parties or making sangrias and the like.
