Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Chardonnay Napa Valley Karia 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Inviting aromas of white peach, apple, spiced pear, and citrus join with floral notes of honeysuckle and roses to create a beautiful bouquet. The fruity aromas carry over to the palate and marry with a subtle creaminess and a touch of warm brioche. This delicate richness makes the 2006 KARIA Chardonnay a versatile wine at the dinner table. Try it with chicken piccata, corn risotto, or a warm goat cheese salad.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars:
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is considered one of Napa Valley's first-growths. We were founded by Warren Winiarski and his family in 1970 and are best known for our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons — CASK 23, S.L.V., and FAY. Over the years, our wines have become some of the most highly regarded and collected wines worldwide. They are fashioned to express classic elegance, structure, and ageability, and to reflect the place in which they are grown.

Once again, a solid wine from Stags Leap Cellars. Cream and vanilla in the nose with some white fruit. Rich texture to the wine with a creamy texture and muted fruit.

Apples and pears, but too oaky. Big body. Acidic.

A contrast of fleshy fruit and angular oak, this sets the mineral scent of less against the perfume of Bourbon and brown sugar. Give it some time to absorb some of the oak, then pour it with a veal roast.

Wine Tasting NotesThe allure of this wine begins with aromas of Bosc pear, lemon meringue, and a flinty note. The crisp apple, pear, and citrus flavors linger across the palate while hints of ginger and coconut unfold. A delicate richness best describes this KARIA Chardonnay, making it a versatile wine for the dinner table. Try it with sole in a simple lemon and butter sauce, or with seared Day Boat scallops marinated in lime juice, soy, and honey.

With just a hint of oak, this Chardonnay is all about fruit and acidity. Itandrsquo;s dry and crisp, with a firm, clean mouthfeel, and pleasant citrus, apple, pear and mineral flavors.

Broad, ripe and spicy, with a spicy nutmeg edge to the pear, apple, toast and vanilla flavors, picking up a grassy edge on the finish. A harmonious style thatrsquo;s delicious now.

In 1995, a group of us were lucky to taste this wine in barrel with the winemaker, Robert Brittan, who himself grows much of the Chardonnay that goes into the blend. Thoughtful, generous with his knowledge, and scrupulous about the quality of his wines, he produces a very rich Chardonnay, with typical Napa fruitiness and measured oak influence that is above all balanced and dry enough to enjoy with a meal.

An elegant, understated style, with lots of spicy pear, apple and hazelnut notes. Finishes with a smooth, silky texture and a lingering aftertaste.

Ripe and spicy, boasting pretty pear, light oak, hazelnut and butter flavors that turn elegant and refined.
