Aromas of honeysuckle, lemon and green apple follow through to the palate, and are balanced by minerality characteristics. The mid-palate is full body, yet fresh due to the lively acidity of the wine. A balanced wine that is a true expression of cool climate Chardonnay.
A fashionable country resort in the mid-twentieth century, popular with Hollywood due to its 1892 stone Manor House and historic gardens, legends of bootleggers and gangsters, ghosts and gypsies, Stags' Leap has been home to three major family groups up through the modern revitalization of the winery that began in the 1970s. An intimate valley within the greater Napa Valley, Stags Leap is a place of natural beauty, storied buildings and gardens, a lively history, and a reputation for elegant wines showing finesse and intensity.
