Review: 2017 Bota Box Dry Rose California
Boxed wine continues its quest for acceptance among serious wine drinkers, and Bota Box’s Dry Rose — a mystery blend from all over the state — does a decent job at furthering that agenda. As the name of the wine states, this rose is on the dry side (though not bone dry), a tart and rather floral rose with a slightly spicy edge to it. Strawberry notes kick up as the finish approaches, which also finds a peaches-and-cream character to the proceedings. For self-described pool-and-beach wine, it’s remarkably approachable and sophisticated.
