Hello. Where have you been all my life?

I popped into Trader Joe's last night after yoga for some supplies and wine. When I went into the wine shop, I grabbed a basket, so as to facilitate my purchase of a half dozen bottles of Cab and Shiraz.

But, oh. What's this? A boxed wine display? It's $9.99 for three liters? Shit, I put my basket back and grabbed two boxes of Shiraz. That appeared to be the only option. I didn't pay any mind to what the white was.

Of course, I had to try a glass (or two) as soon as I got home. Holy shit, y'all. It. Is. Delicious. It is considerably better than the bottled Charles Shaw brand Shiraz or Cab. Those are the only Chuck varieties I drink, really. It's absolutely up there with Bota Box and the Big House boxed wines.

I'm so excited for another cheap, delicious wine option. And this is seriously cheap. It is four bottles for $10. That is $2.50 per bottle. It's better than most $3 wines. Probably better than even more expensive wines. Let's not forget it is kinder to Mother Earth, as well.

I'm absolutely, 100 percent in love. Sorry for staying away for so long, Trader Joe's. I'll be back on the regular.

Shut uuuuuuuuuup! I may need to go to my TJ's tonight to see if we have this. This is definitely a game changer.

I know, right? I feel ... bad? though, because I looked it up on the Interwebs after I tried it and wrote this post, just to see how long it had been around or if anyone had written anything about it.

Most of what I found said it was terrible. But I'm on my third night of drinking it and I still think it's good. I guess I feel a little bad knowing I quite enjoy an apparently shitty wine. But then again, I kinda don't care.
