A nice fall type day on the deck. This Stags Leap is definitely a nice drinkable chard but just not enough oak for my taste. Probably doesn’t help that I’m enjoying a nice Maduro cigar. Should have gone with a more oaky choice. I do like the acidity and it is fresh. Has a little mineral on the back end which I actually enjoy. I think I would enjoy this more on a warm summer day. Stags always delivers for me but I am just an amateur so just telling what I’m tasting. If you prefer a refreshing chard over deep oak. This is a go to. Enjoy. Made my Saturday evening deck date with my wife very enjoyable.
