Staglin Family Vineyard - Chardonnay - Estate - Rutherford, Napa Valley
Overview: Founded in 1985 by Shari, Garen, Brandon and Shannon, Staglin Family Vineyard takes pride in the tradition of family ownership and participation. With an uncompromising commitment to quality, our mission is to produce world class wines that reflect the distinctive character of this historic Rutherford Bench estate. As stewards of this land we farm the vineyard organically, tap in to our solar fields for power and produce the wines in a state of the art underground production facility. We are passionate about this business, this land, our philanthropy and for the meaningful relationships we develop with each passing day. We hope this passion is evident when you enjoy our wines.
Tasting Notes: A layered subtlety centered around a baking spice infused core of Braeburn apple and Bosc pear poached in a slightly savory brine that lends to a saline and mineral inflected midpalate enlivened by composed acidity and beguiling hints of cardamom and turmeric root. A bit reticent and shy at first, this wine really opens and fully blossoms with some time and big swirls in the glass to become livelier and more lifted, invitingly dancing on the palate and through the long and balanced finish.
