Tasting Note: Versus bottles or cans, BIBs use less energy and cost less to produce, transport, store, and consume. The bags are also better than they used to be at protecting the wine with much lower oxygen transmission rates than the earlier BIB days. They also stay fresh longer than bottles because the bag compresses as it empties reducing the amount of air the wine is exposed to. B.Y.O.B is a mid-weight easy drinking, fun red that is juicy, fresh, and all-purpose.
