Aldi’s California Red Blend in a Box
This Winking Owl Red Blend boxed wine from Aldi is a smooth medium-bodied red wine. Notes of ripe berries, blackberry, cherry, and red fruit for a deep rich flavor. Pairs well with grilled or roasted meats, rich red pasta sauce, and spicy foods. Boxed wines are often preferred by many people since the box allows you to just have a cup or two without finishing the bottle. Because boxed wine is stored in a bag inside the box no oxygen reaches the wine when it is open and it will stay fresh for a much longer time than an unsealed bottle. Plus more wine! A 3L box of wine is equal to four standard wine bottles
