Stag's Leap Winery 2007 Chardonnay - 87pts

Stag's Leap Winery 2007 Chardonnay (Napa Valley) California

Availability: BCLDB Signature Stores
Cost: $30-35
Alcohol: 14.2%
Date Tasted: January 11th, 2012

Tasting Notes: With a brilliant gold hue, showing some development, this Chardonnay from famed Napa Valley producer Stag's Leap Winery offers a nice expression of orchard fruit with well balanced acidity and texture. What it doesn't offer is value for money, at least, not when sourced in BC with the punitive provincial mark-ups. At $30-plus in this market one expects a more memorable experience, not "a nice wine". If you're saving a bottle, better open it relatively soon as this wine has peaked. Drink now-2013.
