This is one of the best boxed red wines on the market, and it's in wide distribution at good wine retailers. Spain's garnacha, known in France as grenache, is a red wine varietal that combines full body with soft, lush, easy-to-drink fruit flavors. This one is typical of a good version in that its charm and "fun factor" outweigh its complexity — which is great for the type of occasions in which a box is appropriate. This wine offers lush blackberry and wild berry fruit with hints of herbs, earth and chocolate. Its price is the equivalent of less than $7 each of four bottles.
Price: $25/3 liter
Serve with: Grilled red meat, pasta
Wine Find: 2011 Vina Borgia Garnacha
