Black Box Wines - BzzAgent Review

I'm by no means a wine aficionado.  In fact, I couldn't tell you what wines pair best with which foods.  All I'm concerned about is whether it tastes good.  Every once in a while, at the campground, my friends and I will drink wine and other adult beverages while hanging out. 

I recently hosted a Black Box Wines surprise tasting party, courtesy of BzzAgent.  I received mail-in rebates so I could get Black Box Wines, rebates to share with guests, magnets, and plastic wine glasses.  The wine I went with from Black Box Wines was the Chardonnay, for its tropical fruit aromas of pineapple and banana. 
I also purchased a couple of other wines of different brands and flavors.

At the party I hosted, my ten guests did a blind taste test.  All three wines were poured in the plastic wine glasses and guests had to rate them based on how well they liked them.  Out of my ten guests, seven of them preferred the Black Box Wine to the other two.  The Chardonnay is a light wine that seems most suited for spring and summer seasons.  It had a pleasing flavor. 

After everyone had partaken in the taste test, I explained to them about Black Box Wines and handed out the rebate forms so everyone can purchase some themselves in the future.  Because the wine comes from a box, it holds three liters which is the equivalent of four 750 milliliter glass bottles.  It also remains fresh for four weeks after opening.  Me and my guests drank it all the same night of the party, so it's safe to say we enjoyed it. 

I received products for review as being a BzzAgent.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products.  Your opinions and results may differ.
