Okay, go ahead and get your laughs in now, but this wine is pretty tasty, and dirt cheap.

No, it isn't Lynch Bages, but for a big crowd of folks and tight finances, this wine is very drinkable.

Cost? $20 for a three-liter box -- five bucks a bottle. Wine? Bota Box Cabernet Sauvignon by Delicato.

The Bota Box won the Best Value Wine of the Show at NWIWC.

Sounds close enough to botox to be a hit with the left coast crowd.

I found a Delicato Syrah pleasant when I bought one at the grocery store--not really typical of Syrah as a variety but quite drinkable. Does the Cabernet Sauvignon have some of the flavor/aroma profile you look for in Cabernet?

You know that Delicato Syrah is actually a Gold medal winner. They are famous for it. If you really want to know the deal of a century, its a wine that we have coming in that we're making part of the free shipping 90+pt case called 2007 Saint Espirit Cotes du Rhone. Its $9.99 on most places online. I am personally buying 5 cases for myself. Its got incredible tannic structure and well balanced. FOr the price, its an insanely great deal. Pick one up at a store near you and try it... no kidding! 90 pts by RP for under $10

More towards the generic red spectrum, but certainly good enough for those 50-80 person parties, where a wide range of wine experience exists.
