This beautiful estate has its roots stretching back to the late 1880's. In the late 1880s, Horace Chase, an eligible bachelor from Chicago, and Mary Ysabela "Minnie" Mizner, belle of society in the former state capital of Benicia, met at Napa Soda Springs Resort in the hills outside Napa.
While the Manor House was being constructed Horace had decided to take advantage of grapes on the property by making wine. By 1892, 80 acres of vineyards were in production. Since he had no winemaking facilities, he built a 150 foot wine cave by blasting into the volcanic rhyolite rock of the Palisades. The cave was the first to be built into the east side of the Napa Valley
"This is 2021 Napa Valley Chardonnay is bright and lively with fresh notes of lemon verbena, orange blossom, Golden Delicious apple, and Asian pear, with Tarte Tatin and brioche toast. Mouthwatering and crisp, the palate is focused with a lean backbone of acidity balanced by layers of honeysuckle, hazelnut, and white peach, all supported by a round, creamy mouthfeel. The long, persistent finish offers a slight flintiness that is inviting and intriguing, encouraging sip after sip. Elegant and graceful, it's an exemplary Chardonnay sure to please many a discriminating palate."
2021 Stags' Leap Winery Chardonnay
"White peach, flint, and primary character. White blossom. Medium body. Medium phenolic texture and energetic acidity. Light lemon bitterness. Steely. Serious and solid."
