Block Red Wine 2015(?) Shiraz: It's definitely wine. $12 for 3L

I've been struggling to put together a good post about this wine, because:
1. I drank it over several days, so there's not one cohesive story to tie it into a review.
2. There's not a lot to say about it.

I picked out this wine because I had a lot of stuff going on that called for wine, but that didn't need a bottle. For example, I was painting at home and thought wine would be nice to have while painting (takes the edge off that awful self-critic). Sure, I could have a bottle, but why bother? Or, as another example, we were going to the Sunset Magazine Celebration Weekend, and it seemed like maybe we should bring a Foldable Wine Bottle with us (little did we realize there was no point in sneaking wine into a wine event).

So... I guess the "lot to say about it" is that it's practical.

It's not overly tart, but it's also not smooth enough to be a favorite of mine.

Would I buy it again? Absolutely. I would bring this to the beach for a picnic 100% for sure, without hesitation.

In fact, whenever Rachel lets me come visit her, I'll probably bring this for her to try as well.
