Los Carneros

Black Stallion Estate Winery Chardonnay opens with overflowing aromas of melon, white peaches, lemon and vanilla, followed by lush flavors of yellow apple, pear and coconut. Rich and full on the palate, bright fruit and creamy notes lead into a lingering finish.

Vintage

The 2013 vintage picked up right where 2012 left off with another ideal growing season. A warm, dry spring and early bud break was followed by a long, sunny summer with consistently moderate temperatures. Dry conditions prevailed throughout the season due to the absence of any significant precipitation. Cooperative weather, healthy vines and even ripening jumpstarted one of the earliest harvests in recent history resulting in bright, vibrant and balanced Chardonnay.
