    Default New Trader Joe's wine

    Hitting your local Trader Joe's in the next day or two will be a wine called Xs Cabernet. It is the same wine as Hess Cabernet and the price is only 3.99 a bottle. It is a limited deal so get it while you can if you like Hess wines.

    $4 wine? Come on people, does it come in a box?



    It's like a giant juice box for rednecks.

    Xs used to retail for $9.99 and it was considered a great value at that price point. Just because a wine is cheap, doesn't mean it's bad.

    Actually, there are a few wines that come in a box that aren't half bad. Times are a changing.

    Sorry but I don't think I'll ever overcome the association I have built between box wine and alcoholics on a budget.

    I just can't fathom having a nice dinner party and plopping down a big ass box in the middle of the table and have my woman or my friends help themselves like a pee-wee soccer team at halftime helps themselves to the Gatorade.

    Black Box Merlot is pretty good and arguably the best boxed wine. I dont drink it all the time but for 20 bucks its the equivalent of 4 bottles and doesnt go bad. Perfect for the times when you only want 1 glass and dont want to open a $3.99 bottle of wine.

    I love, love, love any of the Hess Collection wines. So much better than Hess Select.

    The taste has definitely gotten better for cheaper wines, but I still find there is a direct correlation between the price of the wine and the size of my headache the next morning.
