Block 67 Cabernet Sauvignon
February 1, 2016—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Long before boxed wine, people were putting wine in a box. “It’s just for the elite,” some would say. Others would claim that wine is generally too “cultured” for tailgating. Or, that it’s most fitting only when poured into the correct stemware, resting on a well-laid table.
We wanted to put wine in a box, too. How did we do it? Why, by actually putting wine… in a box! Of course, boxed wine isn’t a new thing, but we’d like to think that the particular approach we take with our Block 67 wines adds real value.
Take, for example, our Block 67 Cabernet Sauvignon (“Block” for the box; “67” for the year Trader Joe’s was founded). First, it has an incredibly easy-to-use twisting pour spout, as do all of our Block 67 wines. Second, it lasts up to 45 days after opening—meaning you won’t have to drink all three liters in one sitting… Phew!
Third, we’ve used wine from California. Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with some additional California varietals to create a bold, medium-bodied red. It opens up with aromas of blackberry and black cherry, and brings notes of toasted vanilla to your palate. It finishes with soft, elegant tannins.
We don’t mean to put you in a box, but we can almost bet you’re the kind that will really enjoy this wine. No doubt, you will enjoy the price. The three liter box of Block 67 Cabernet Sauvignon is $11.99*. Find it everyday, alongside our bottled wines.
* Block 67 Cabernet Sauvignon is currently available in Trader Joe's stores where wine is sold. It is $11.99 plus tax. Alcohol availability & price may vary due to state laws, taxes, shipment fees & other such stuff.
