ISO *good* boxed red wine in Boston

For several years now, I've kept boxed red wine around the house for cooking. It's convenient, inexpensive, and it keeps for over a month after opening, so there's a lot to like.

I would love to find a box of red wine with quality comparable to a carefully selected $10ish bottle. Has anyone found any legitimately good everyday drinkers out around town?

Two I've found that come close:

* Spirited Gourmet in Belmont has a 3L box of Cotes du Rhone called From the Tank. It's ok, but at $40/box, I can get better value by the bottle.

* Wine and Cheese Cask in Somerville carried a 3L Cotes du Rhone for about $30 that I actually liked better than the above, but it seems to have gone the way of the dodo.

For reference, a bunch I've tried that, for me, do not count as good: Black Box, Bota Box, Franzia, Washington Hills.
