About the ChardonnayTheir Monterey County Chardonnay displays fresh aromas of citrus with notes of pineapple. The palate is rich with a full entry and flavors of tropical mango and green grape. It finishes long and warm with the ripe flavors returning.
About the RieslingTheir Riesling from California features fruity aromas of orange blossom and lemon zest. On the palate, the crisp acidity is balanced by some sweetness and its silky mouthfeel leads to a long finish. It pairs nicely with spicy Thai cuisine as well as pork loin and barbecue.
About Black Box WineYears ago while traveling in Europe, Black Box founder Ryan Sproule was amazed at how many Europeans drank premium-quality box wines. They favored freshness, value and convenience over tradition. By forgoing expensive bottles in favor of bag-in-a-box packaging, European vintners were providing their customers with better wines at better prices.
When Ryan returned to the U.S., he was surprised there were no high-end box wines available. He decided to rectify the situation by establishing Black Box. In 2003, Black Box became the first U.S. vintner to offer super-premium, appellation-specific, vintage-dated wines in a box – wines whose last sip is reliably as good as the first.
Today, they're proud to offer a full range of high end box wines crafted from grapes grown in the world’s best winegrowing regions. Whether you enjoy a glass with dinner or on an outing with friends, Black Box provides delicious, priceworthy wines for every occasion. They hope you enjoy them as much as they do.
