Why do we love this wine?
Nervy and precise. Mineral and complex. The little bit of age on this wine has allowed some richness and fullness to further develop, but it's the freshness and zeal that steal the show. Gun smoke, slate, river-rock notes with just the suggestion of salinity lurking in the shadows. The fruit profile is distinctly Mediterranean; whole lemon, grapefruit, and tangerine drive the wine. The acid is (as it should be with chardonnay) the beginning, middle, and end of this story - exciting and zippy, ushering the fruit along without ever overpowering it. It's more ever-present undertone than overture, and that's just one of the tiny details that make this wine a triumph. Buy it. Drink some. Cellar some. Enjoy it all.

What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
