VineOh! Winter Box Review Featuring New Crush Riesling and Speechless Merlot
Every VineOh! box comes with a little envelope of info cards.
I love that they go into detail about each product and the company behind it. There are usually special offers on each card, too!
Violet and Brooks Sylvia Charm Bangle – Retail Value $28.00
The launch of this particular box lines up perfectly with Valentine’s Day. Whether you get the box as a gift for someone else or as a gift for yourself, you’ll get some good Valentine’s mileage out of this charm bracelet. The metal has a gorgeous shine to it, and the rhinestone-studded heart is a sweet, yet subtle touch of romance. It is on the smaller side, in my opinion—it’s 2.5″ in diameter and is a bit stubborn about bending—but once it’s on, it looks cute and doesn’t slip up and down my wrist.
And get this—the company behind this gold cuff-style bangle donates a percentage of their profits to an organization that benefits homeless youth and teens!
Mary Square Stainless Bottle, 17 oz. – Listed Value $31.00
I couldn’t find this exact pattern online, so I linked to the same shape and size in a different design. The bottles on the Mary Square site all list values of $33.75—the info card lists a slightly lower price. Regardless, this 17 oz. bottle is super cute and has a nice smooth, almost velvety plastic texture on the outside, despite its steel interior. I love the gold lid, and the spring flowers look so bright and happy. I like bringing water bottles with me wherever I go, and while this more traditional floral pattern might not be the one I’d pick out for myself (I’d probably have picked something a little more graphic or sleek), I like having a cuter, more stylish alternative to my rather utilitarian red Nalgene, haha! Oh, and Mary Square’s site says that they use some proceeds from the water bottles they sell to fund projects in areas without access to clean water. I’m digging the community-minded brands that are featured in this box!
Lady Jayne Eyemask – Retail Value $8.00
🎶We flawless… ladies… tell ’em…🎶
Oh, sorry, am I the only one with Beyonce on the brain right now?
While I don’t use eyemasks on the regular, I do love them on trips, where it takes a lot more effort for me to shut out the world around me and get some shut-eye. This satiny eye mask will come in handy on my next plane or train trip. I like that it has a retro eyelash design reminiscent of the one Holly Golightly wears in Breakfast at Tiffany’s but with the twist of a gold foil Queen Bey quote. Cute!
Mirabella Glisten Eyeshadow Collection – Retail Value $24.50, Listed Value $25.00
The value listed on the info card for this palette is higher than the retail price, but only by $0.50, so I’m not sweating it. I’m into this palette—the hues end up being pretty neutral, so they’ll work whether my BF and I do something ultra-fancy this Valentine’s Day or keep things chill and just catch a movie. I was impressed by how pigmented these smooth powdery shadows are, and that they’re paraben-free, talc-free, gluten-free, and FD&C/D&C dye-free, too.
Brix Chocolate for Wine in Smooth Dark Chocolate, 3 oz. – Listed Value $6.00, Buy a 3-Pack for $17.97 here
I think it’s so fascinating how wines can impact the flavors you perceive in different foods, and how eating certain foods can do the same for wine. This chocolate was designed with that phenomenon in mind. To be honest, it’s a pretty tasty brick of dark chocolate all on its own but paired with specific types of wine, this 54% cacao dark chocolate really sings. I tried it with a Riesling (more on that in a moment), as was recommended by the package. The chocolate seemed to make the Riesling taste more velvety smooth (it woke up some fruitier caramel notes), and the Riesling made this rather dark chocolate somewhat sweeter and more vibrant. The only trick of this chocolate is that it’s in a really thick, sturdy brick of a bar. Cutting it isn’t too hard, but I wish it was easier to break apart and nibble on. That said, I like that you could easily use it to make chocolate shavings to top some ice cream or another dessert. (This chocolate is supposed to go well with Port, so it could be awesome for a dessert course.)
2016 New Crush Riesling – Retail Value $22.99
Onto the wines! These wines are VineOh!’s own brands, which have been pretty tasty thus far. This Riesling is the one I tried with the chocolate, and even without the chocolate, it’s really yummy wine. I’m more of a red gal, but in trying so many wine subscriptions over the past year, I’ve really started to appreciate white wine. This Riesling was both refreshing and a little decadent, too. My first impressions were that it had an almost vanilla-ish (or maybe white chocolate-ish) fruity flavor—it’s sweet, but not in a saccharine way, and it has a smooth, pleasing way of drifting over your palette. It’s got a sharp, pungent little pop to it at the end, too, to wake you up. The back label tells me that the expert-observed flavors are Jasmine, white pepper, lemon zest, dried apricot, and wintergreen. I can definitely see the white pepper part, and even the wintergreen. It just has such a nice freshness to it that I liked a lot.
2015 Speechless California Merlot – Retail Value $24.99
Oh, red wine, how I love thee. This Merlot was a nice subtle wine to sip on—it was gentle going down, but had a rich, earthy flavor that filled my senses after the first sip. I love when wines have that almost roasty vibe that coffee does, and this one had just enough of that sensation to make it super satisfying. The label likens the flavor to dried figs, black currants, cinnamon, anise, licorice, blackberry jam, cloves, and caraway. There’s definitely something hearty about the flavor of this wine, though it’s very light to drink. It’s perfect for making a winter evening in feel sophisticated.
The Verdict: I really liked this winter box! I think it’d make a great Valentine’s (or Galentine’s) Day gift, but I appreciated that the items inside weren’t so explicitly Valentine’s-y that you couldn’t make use of them year ’round. I could see wearing that bracelet and certainly using that water bottle throughout the seasons. And I’m eager to start playing around with that eyeshadow palette—it’s so versatile, I’m sure it’ll serve me on ordinary days, as well as special occasions. Oh, and did I mention that the wines were delicious, too? I could actually see ordering more of that Riesling in the future!
