Remember last week when I was giddy and excited about the possibility of finding respectable wine in a box? Consider that journey over. There are too many landmines.
We had tried the Bota Box Malbec before this and it was very good if you like Black Cherry Kool-Ade, but utterly useless as wine. The zinfandel is better, drinkable even, but so far behind any other affordable zinfandel that it hardly bears mention. No reason to linger on this. Avoid the zinfandel. Avoid the malbec like the plague.
