Boxed wine in a bottle?
This evening I cracked open a bottle of 2004 Marquaés de Caceres Rioja. A nice dark rosé wine that smelled of a (too) young spicy citrus when I first opened the bottle but a Daily Show segment later it has become a smooth drink with a rose petal essence. It kept a strong scent of alcohol that I was hoping would go away and reminded my husband of boxed wines that his parents used to drink. I would love a slice of manchego and dates to go with this vino but I'm afraid I don't have those items in stock and probably won't be buying it again. Would I recommend it as an inexpensive after work drink? Probably not.
