Then one day the wine gods decided to pay me a visit & blessed me with one fabulous pitch! A wine subscription from the folks a Glassful! Now this was a subscription box I could get behind 100% since I have yet to meet a bottle of wine I totally hated!
Products: 3 bottles of wine
Ships to: All states EXCEPT AL, AK, KY, MS, NH, PA, UT
The first bottle I received is a red blend from Sonoma County, California. It’s a Bordeaux blend, and the inaugural release of this wine (2007) received a whopping 95-point rating from Wine Enthusiast. The “Sommelier Notes” for this wine describe it as “showing bright cherry and cassis on the nose, with hints of violet, tobacco, leather, and dark chocolate.” While it’s fine to open up this wine now, Glassful’s sommelier recommends aging it for a few years. I rarely earmark bottles for aging, but I’m going to give it a shot with this one!
2012 Jeff Hill Pinot Noir
This is another Napa wine. Pinot Noir is always a welcome sight (it’s my all time favorite!), and this one did not disappoint. It was very fruity (lots of berry and plum flavors) and had a solid earthiness that balanced out the fruit.
2013 SHANNON RIDGE SAUVIGNON BLANC
Quintessential Sauvignon Blanc from California! Aromas and flavors of grapefruit and melon are underscored with subtle spice and juicy acidity. This wine definitely over-delivers for this kind of price. Super clean and fresh, there's a nice lift of mouthwatering, crisp acidity in the finish that carries the day!
The Pinot Noir was beyond delicious, the Terra Bella Blend ended up being the favorite out of the 3 which was a shocker since I'm Pinot obsessed!!! & the Shannon Ridge was a nice change from my usual reds!!!!
I also really like that every box is a a complete surprise matched to your pallet. A subscription box filled with mystery bottles forces you to broaden your palette & to try wines from new vineyards.
I should also mention that the value of the bottles I received was extremely impressive. $85 of wine in a $54 box? Now that's one killer deal if you ask me! If you're someone who buys more wine than they would like to admit, a subscription like this is not only a yummy choice, but a financially smart one as well!
