SCHOOL SUPPLIES: BOXED WINE
We’re BIG fans of the bag-in-box format, and our selection right now is top notch with the addition of these three new guys! If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, here are some of the benefits:
- Once you open a box, it will stays fresh for a month or more. The wine is vacuum packed in a bag inside of the box, and the spout is air tight. Drink what you want, drink a little more, and save the rest for later.
- Each box contains four bottles worth of wine. Since the cost of expensive-to-ship glass is negated, boxes generally costs a fraction of the price that comparable wine costs in a 750 mL
- Lighter to ship, easier to recycle, less waste all around- boxes are super eco-friendly. Mother Earth needs all the help she can get.
BRIDGE LANE RED BLEND, NORTH FORK 2012
46% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec from the North Fork of Long Island. On the fuller side of medium-bodied and surprisingly nuanced, with notes of cedar and black cherries, and a long, spicy finish. Drink local!!! $44
CUBI ROUGE, VIN DE FRANCE 2013
A blend of Syrah and Carignan hailing from beautiful Corbieres, where Benedictine monks started making wine at the Abbeye of Saint Eugenie soon after its founding in the year 817. Dark fruit, balanced acidity, and impressive structure. Bring on the Fall! $32
CUBI BLANC, VIN DE FRANCE 2013
Hailing from Gascony (Armagnac country), this bright, exuberant Sauvignon Blanc is almost too easy to drink, if there was such a thing. Bright, lip-smacking acidity is balanced by subtle tropical fruit and steely minerality. $32
