Description from Wine Awesomeness:
Portuguese “green wine” aka Vinho Verde is the ultimate morning, noon, and night vinous partner. Its gentle fizz, modest alcohol, and citrus twist make for glass after glass of mouthwatering deliciousness. Lime, granny smith apple, and kumquat give it more flavor than a Prosecco or Cava. A hybrid-style of wine, one part bubbles, one part dry white wine. It’s a party starter and closer no matter the hour. Plus, it swims well with all finned fare and salty snacks.
I enjoyed this wine! I’m in no way a wine expert, but I can tell you that I prefer a light white wine, and this fit the bill nicely!
It doesn’t take much to crack the Code of this killer Shiraz from one of Australia’s best spots for the grape. Dark and intense fruit flavors mingle with savory, spicy stuff the speak Shee-razz with the best of them. To be clear, Shiraz is the same exact grape as Syrah, however, Petite Sirah is a different grape all together. Henry’s Drive is an ace estate that’s racked up quite a trophy chest in the past decade, and their Morse Code outsmarts the competition for it’s true varietal character and yum factor. Legit. Perfect for long grill sessions, or burning the midnight oil.
California is good at making inexpensive red wine blends that taste like melted jello, but rarely do these wines possess much in the way of character. The Boatman is the bomb man! Holy smokes is this supremely delicious and super drinkable. The rare Alicante Bouschet grape, known for being one of the few red wine grapes that has red juice, leads the darkly-hued charge. Malbec and Merlot add to the saturated color profile while giving it smooth edges and extra berry punch. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah add a little dust and grip to this tasty, ultra-satisfying blend. An all purpose, all star California wine for just about any occasion.
Wine Awesomeness offers 3 different subscription options: All red, all white (with a chance of rose or bubbly), or a mix (with a chance of rose or bubbly). I decided to go with the mix even though I only drink white since my husband Eric drinks red, and I have to have both options on hand to be a good host, right?
We opened these recently when we had friends over, and they both were hits. (I’m also the type of person who buys wine 90% based on packaging/labels, so I really like the Morse Code bottle!)
Verdict: I really like Wine Awesomeness! I think the pricing is reasonable – $15 per bottle shipped to my door, and I like the detail of the info booklet that is included. I’m a wine novice, but who knows, maybe if I pay attention to the tasting notes included each month, I may develop a bit of an expertise!
Plus this is a wine box that ships to Pennsylvania! (If you live in a state where it is difficult/impossible to get alcohol in the mail, then you may understand why I’m so excited about this).
