This is one of several releases in the Octavin Home Wine Bar system. The wine in a box, billed as eco-friendly, delivers the equivalent of four standard bottles of wine. This is a blend with minute quantities of other grapes from several parts of California’s Monterey and Paso Robles areas. The wine has a deep purple color with hints of blackberry and raspberry. It is a very light-flavored glass of cabernet but no finish for the serious drinker. This wine stayed consistent from week one to week six as promised by the company.
