Black Stallion Napa Valley Chardonnay 2019
The Black Stallion Napa Valley Chardonnay is so good, it made the cut for our 90+ Wine Club. We wanted to keep it all for us, but decided that the right thing to do was share it. Pour it with brunch, lunch, cocktail hour or dinner with a Waldorf salad tossed in a creamy buttermilk dressing, herb-crusted cod with pea puree or an asparagus risotto. You'll be glad you did, winelovers.
James Suckling: “White peach, sliced apple, custard and hints of spice on the nose. It’s full-bodied with crisp acidity and concentrated layers of ripe stone fruit, cream and praline. Drink or hold.” Feb 2021
Winery: “Black Stallion Estate Winery Chardonnay opens with aromas of yellow pear, lemon curd, jasmine and hint of oak. The flavors are tantalizing notes of citrus, chamomile, orange blossom and brown butter. The Chardonnay from the cooler vineyards provides the bright acidity, citrus notes, and lean backbone of the wine, where the Chardonnay from the warmer growing regions of the Napa Valley contributes a riper, fuller-bodied character. The wine has a rich mid-palate weight creating a multi-layered, complex wine and a lingering finish.
Pairing suggestions: Sip this wine on its own as an aperitif or pair alongside with goat cheese, salad and dishes such as crab, lobster, grilled shrimp or roast chicken.”
