2018 Black Stallion Napa Valley Chardonnay – 90 Points

The 2018 Black Stallion Napa Valley Chardonnay is one that will please the palate of California Chardonnay fans. It is bold, but not over the top. It is a full complement of Chardonnay flavors, including apple and pear, plus a good dose of oak. The acidity is just right and combines with a creamy texture. The Chardonnay has an excellent finish.

The Black Stallion Napa Valley Chardonnay came from five different AVA’s in the Napa Valley and spent 10 months sur lie in 100% French Oak barrels. The Black Stallion Estate Winery is on the Silverado Trail in the Napa Valley, in the Oak Knoll AVA.

Safeway stores carry the Black Stallion Napa Valley Chardonnay. The sale price varies, but we have seen it priced between $14 to $17. We also find it at BevMo for $17. At the Black Stallion winery, the price is $22.

Black Stallion Napa Valley Chardonnay and Food

The Black Stallion Chardonnay can stand up to many different hearty meals. It is bold enough to take on red meat. I find it hard to relate a white wine to meat, so with that mental obstacle I am sticking to roast Chicken, Salmon, or a grilled Halibut with a garlic aioli.

The 2018 Black Stallion has a rating of 90 Points from the Wine Enthusiast, and we are also giving it the same rating. For under $20, it tops many California Chardonnays at twice the price.

  1. Hi Joe
    I have not tried this wine. I have one for you to consider though. Try the caber franc made by Steele Vineyards
    They sell it at Costco for less than $14.00. I think you will enjoy it!

    Thanks for all your tips over these many months
