2018 Night Vine California Cabernet Sauvignon – Retail Value $24.00
Night Vine, perfect for the nights that require reflection and rejuvenation.
Night Vine Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of wild dark fruits, baking spices, tobacco and hits of vanilla. Flavors of plum, dark cherry and blueberry leads to well-balanced tannins and structure.
Cabernet Sauvignon is my favorite red wine. It was actually the first type of red I liked when I was first trying out wines. Something about the redness of the fruit with the smoothness and spice is irresistible! Even if you don’t think you are a red fan, a glass of Cab might change your mind!
2017 Speechless California Red Wine Blend – Retail Value $24.00
Sometimes life leaves you speechless – in the best way. Whether it was a look, a kind gesture or maybe just the right words that spoke right to your heart, the effect can be profound. That’s what inspired this wine…so delicious, unexpected, it left us speechless.
Speechless Red Wine Blend has bold flavors of black cherry, boysenberry jam, mild oakiness, cedar, medium body, casiss, black cherry with integrated oak tannins. Faint echo of black tea and sweet tannins on the finish.
I think this might also be a nice intro to red wine for a lot of people too! It isn’t sweet, but the overall flavor is so fruity! And it makes a great compliment to steak. There is a certain woodiness to this one as well that makes it very interesting and a delight to sip.
2019 Mad Love Pinot Grigio California – Retail Value $24.00
A Mad Love is rare. It’s a passionate love that withstands the test of time.
Mad Love Pinot Grigio is aromatic and complex with aromas of citrus blossom, lime zest, white peach, and honeydew melon. Flavors ranging from casaba melon to citrus zest with a hint of creme fraiche in the finish make this Pinot Grigio a crisp, succulent Mad Love experience.
Pinot is a wine I am slowly coming to appreciate. I think I was too used to sweet whites to really appreciate this one as I should, but I am working on it! The description is accurate! This wine has a distinct citrus flavor with a little lime bite and just a little creaminess. It goes wonderfully with fruit and I prefer it chilled.
2018 Tines California Chardonnay – Retail Value $24.00
Tines Chardonnay has aromas of vanilla, apples, lemon zest and creme brulee. Flavors of ripe Apricot, sweet cream butter, with a bright finish of caramel and brioche. French and American oak influence.
This Chardonnay has such a nice woodiness! It balances out the fruitiness really beautifully and there is a very noticeable vanilla note that makes the whole glass feel somehow warm. Yum!
Now, onto the lifestyle items!
Willow Collective Plaid Throw – Retail Value $30.00
FYI: This blanket measures 50 X 60 inches.
Honestly, there is no such thing as too many blankets for me in the winter. A Tennessee transplant to Pennsylvania, I will never be used to this cold or the snow. Most of my winter evenings are comprised of me watching Netflix on the couch covered in as many blankets as I can find. This black and red plaid number is totally festive and the fleecy finish is soft and comforting. It is lightweight but warm! This has become one of Piper’s favorite blankets to bundle up in when I am not joining her on the couch.
Stephanie’s Bridal Boutique Earrings – Listed Value $25.00
I am really, really surprised by the quality of these earrings. Often, larger crystals can look a little ‘eh’ in subscription box earrings, but these czs are so sharp and clear. They collect and scatter light beautifully, and the size here would work well for everyday wear or a fancier occasion. I also love the double clawed setting in the soft gold color.
The Potted Plant Vanilla Chai Body Lotion, 16.5 fl oz – Listed Value $23.00
I am not a fan of chai scents so I was expecting this to be a miss for me and my nose. But I think this scent is actually great! The vanilla is so strong and creates such a warm vibe that the chai is secondary. The whole scent feels much more like a warm holiday spice than chai. And the formula is really nourishing thanks to the coconut oil and aloe inside. So, though this might have made a great gift, I think I will be keeping it!
Willow Collective Mug – Retail Value $15.00
Do I need more mugs? No. But do I love mugs? Yes! Especially oversized ones like this cheerful red one. Sure, it would be perfect for morning coffee or a large hot chocolate treat, but I will use it for my tea. I like a very big mug for my tea because I often drink loose leaf and I like my tea leaves to have room to swim! This red glaze is positively festive and I love the little snowflake speckles all over.
Sexy Hair Holiday Light Up Phone Charger – Listed Value $12.00
Ok, I thought this was a weird addition to this box. Because it is branded, it feels more like free swag than a box item. But I will say that I absolutely love charging with this thing. It is kind of over the top and ridiculous which makes it really fun. The lights fade and twinkle too! Other benefits? The cord adapter fits my iPhone AND my Nintendo Switch. It is also pretty long, measuring over 7 feet! So, sure, this felt weird and random, it might be my favorite thing in this box, aside from the wine.
It’s so cute.
Sherpa Socks – Listed Value $12.99
This was a bonus item from the MSA exclusive deal! The socks have sold out! Instead of socks, new subscribers will receive wine charms with the MSA deal! This deal is live until 12/14!
My poor Tennessee feet are cold as ice all winter long. So thicker socks like this are a must-have for comfort. These are decked out in a red, white, and black palette with snowflakes and reindeer. They also have little grippers on the bottom so I don’t fall on my slick hardwood!
Price’s Fine Chocolates Peppermint Bark, 2 oz – Listed Value $5.00
My final item is a nice bar of peppermint bark! This is a mix of white and dark chocolate with candy cane sprinkled on top! I have been trying to behave with my sugar consumption, and I have been super disciplined. So of course I dove into this treat like water in the desert. It is sweet but not too sweet, and the peppermint crumbles add a nice snap!
The Verdict: This Vine Oh! box was SO festive! And it felt even more special with the addition of the bonus bottles of wine and socks. You can still snag this deal too, just sign up before 12/14 using our link and code MSAWINEFORME. All four wines were delightful and tasted great. I love how the rest of the box followed a cozy holiday theme, from the blanket to the socks, the big mug, and even the twinkling charger! The pretty crystal earrings were also quite lovely and very classic. All in all, I really enjoyed this box!
