Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Stags' Leap Napa Valley Chardonnay 2020

The Napa Valley region enjoyed a stunning, near picture-perfect 2020 growing season including good winter rains, mild spring weather and steady temperatures throughout that allowed for even flowering and bud break. These ideal growing conditions were followed by a cool, even and slow-paced harvest which allowed the winery to vinify wines at a gentle pace. The resulting 2020 wines are of very high quality with lower alcohol, concentrated flavors, color and excellent acidity.

The fragrant citrus blossom bouquet opens with aromas of delicate Meyer lemon and lime zest, fresh white peach and floral honeysuckle, alongside more subtle hints of Tarte Tatin and brioche toast (a nod to the well-integrated French Oak) which fills the glass and encourages you to dive into this lively Chardonnay. The palate is refreshingly mouthwatering with nuances of lemon meringue, green apple, guava and Asian pear, while also showing a luscious texture that is rich and balanced (hinting at the delicate batonnage lees stirring that occurs during the winemaking process). With well-integrated vanilla and caramel oak notes and extraordinary length and depth on the finish, this wine is round, full and bright, yet generous in style and maintains a core of freshness due to its acidity, which creates an elegant Chardonnay full of grace and complexity.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Published January 3rd, 2022 - Rated 92:
Cooked-apple and honey character with some candied pear and stone. It’s full-bodied with a rather oily texture, yet it remains fresh and clean at the finish. Drink now.
