Wine cubes fit any party

It’s cute, small and distinctly packaged – 1.5 liters of wine snuggled in a bright red cardboard cube.

Target stores offers this California red selection – 2010 cabernet sauvignon/shiraz blend – priced at a convenient $10.99 and is equivalent to two 750 ml of wine. Trinchero Family Estates makes and bottles the cubes in Napa Valley.

Warm days and cool nights coaxed the best flavors from the grapes.

This medium to full-bodied selection is easy on the palate, fun to drink with no tannins on the finish. It has a nose of smoke and dark berries. A full mouth feel exudes flavors of plum, boysenberry and cherry with a final splash of spice and cocoa.

Pour this with barbecue, avocado and salsa burgers, aged hard cheeses, spicy chicken and hearty soups and stews.

(A larger cube holds 3-liters which is equivalent to four bottles of wine. An innovative smaller cube holds four individual pouches of wine, comparable to one bottle of wine.)

The airtight package insures that the wine stays fresh as the first sip, stacks easily and tucks neatly inside a picnic basket. Because of the minimal packaging that eliminates two heavy glass bottles it is a space and planet saving concept.
