Target® Wine Cubes—A Great Buy for Any Occasion

The perfect, low cost answer for everyday wine lovers, special occasions and travelers; Target® Wine Cube offers delicious, high quality wine mixing color, aroma and flavor to provide a fresh, full-bodied taste from the first glass to the last drop.  Target Wine Cube is conveniently priced and portable – making it ideal for any occasion whether traveling, hosting a party or enjoying an outdoor soiree.
 
Target offers guests the opportunity to experience the Wine Cube in a number of varietals, including Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, Australian Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz blend and Red and White Sangria.  Additionally, a fresh, new Riesling varietal was introduced in April 2010.
 
Target collaborated with Trinchero Family Estates of Napa to select just the right wines for Wine Cube, resulting in a uniquely packaged wine with superior taste and quality.  Wine Cubes are exclusively available at more than 980 Target and SuperTarget stores across the country that sell wine.
 
Innovative Packaging
Wine Cubes are available in three sizes: 3-liter holding the equivalent to four bottles of wine, 1.5-liter holding the equivalent to two bottles of wine and a 4-Pack in which each single serve holds a bit more than a glass of wine.
 
Easy to stack, pack and carry, Wine Cube is perfect for entertaining and on-the-go gatherings—picnics, family reunions, tailgates, barbecues, holiday parties and more.  The eco-friendly packs are constructed of durable, renewable resource materials, ideal anywhere that glass containers are not suitable. 
 
An innovative ramp evacuation system within the cube ensures that the wine is never exposed to oxygen and makes it possible for the wine to last four weeks after opening, guaranteeing that every drop is as good as the first.
 
Tasting Profile
Pinot Grigio: Aromatic with a fruity, slightly floral aroma.  Crisp, ripe fruit notes, including apple, melon and peach.  The Pinot Grigio won Double Gold at the San Francisco Wine Competition in June 2007.

Chardonnay: Full-bodied and smooth with apples, melon, citrus and a delicate floral note with hints of creamy vanilla. 

Merlot: Medium-bodied, silky and juicy varietal with a fruit profile of red and dark berries, black cherry and boysenberry.  A hint of cocoa, vanilla, herbal aromas and a touch of toasty oak character make for easy sipping.

Cabernet Sauvignon: Medium to full-bodied with a complex aroma of subtle spice, cocoa and vanilla notes.  A vibrant acidity with rich flavors of ripe dark berries and fruits.

Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz: The marriage of two popular grape varieties creates a seamless 50/50 blend.  Medium to full-bodied with dark berry richness from plum, boysenberry and cherry and a touch of spice with cocoa and vanilla notes.
 
Australian Chardonnay: Smooth and creamy, full-bodied wine packed with flavors of apple, pear, pineapple and a touch of vanilla/caramel and spice. 
 
Red and White Sangria: Available in season, the Red Sangria is a blend of premium California red grape varieties, offering a festive bouquet of cherry, cranberry and raspberry flavors. The White Sangria combines a premium blend of California white grapes that offers a sweetly fragrant arrangement with scents of rose petal, lychee fruit, mandarin oranges and apricot flavors.
 
Riesling: Mild sweetness balanced by good acidity with a mingling of white peaches, apricot and tart green apple flavors.  Light and refreshing with soft aromas of honey and orange blossoms.
