Fusebox blending kit - anyone tried it?

AnneInMpls | Jul 15, 2008 01:27 PM

Has anyone tried the Fusebox wine blending and tasting kit from Crushpad Wine? What did you think? Was it worth the $120?

I'm looking for ideas for my wine-tasting group. This review made it sound like Fusebox could be fun:

But it's a bit pricy - it works out to $40 a bottle (750 ml size) - especially since I would need two kits.

Would we be better off getting a bottle each of of 100%-pure Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot, and creating our own blending and tasting kit ourselves? (Would I even be able to find 100% Cab Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot on my own?)

Thanks,
Anne
