THE WINE AND VINEYARD
Located on the historic Silverado Trail in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District, Black Stallion Estate Winery pays homage to the rich history of the 32-acre estate which was once home to the Silverado Equestrian Center. The property was purchased in 2010 by the Indelicato family, a fourth generation family-owned company founded in 1924. Sourcing from the most prestigious vineyards, the winery is committed to making only the most expressive wines.
Black Stallion Estate Winery Napa Valley Chardonnay – 2021 Black Stallion Estate Winery Chardonnay opens with aromas of yellow apple, crème brûlée and hints of apricot, pear and oak. The flavors are tantalizing notes of citrus, dried apricot, and pineapple. The Chardonnay from Los Carneros provides the bright acidity, citrus notes, and lean backbone of the wine, and the Chardonnay from the warmer growing regions contributes riper, fuller-bodied character. Vanilla aromatics from oak and floral perfume from the fruit precede ripe fruit flavors balanced with bright acidity and a rich mid-palate weight creating a multi-layered, complex wine with a lingering finish. Sip this wine on its own or pair alongside aged cheeses, fresh salad, shellfish or grilled seafood.
Black Stallion Estate Winery Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc – 2016 Black Stallion Estate Winery Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc opens with vibrant, tropical aromas of guava, papaya, lemongrass and honeysuckle, complemented by flavors of lime, lemon, ripe tropical fruit and orange crème. This wine offers bright acidity, light to medium-body and a remarkable finish.
Black Stallion Estate Winery Los Carneros Pinot Noir – 2021 Lush red fruit aromas of strawberry and blackberry with a hint of spice are extended on the palate with flavors of pomegranate coupled with round black tea-like tannins. Our Los Carneros Pinot Noir is an ideal wine to savor on its own as well as a perfect pairing for glazed duck breast, chicken Marsala or mild, creamy cheeses like brie and camembert.
Black Stallion Estate Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon – 2020 The 2020 vintage continues our signature profile of a slightly softer, and approachable Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This rich and refined wine does not require years of further aging to achieve ideal balance and enjoy upon release. The full-bodied structure is a hallmark. The wine opens with stunning aromas of black cherry dried cranberry and toasty notes of cedar; the palate is concentrated with bold, velvety red flavors of cherry, raspberry, and hints of spice. Intense, concentrated mature fruit and integrated tannins with beautifully balanced acidity extends to an elegant finish.
Dubbed the “Sistine Chapel of rock ’n’ roll,” this historic mobile recording studio was used by British rock legends Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and the Rolling Stones. Conceived by Rolling Stones tour manager Ian Stewart and built in 1968, the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio (RSM) was the first ever professional mobile recording studio, built to accommodate the band’s wild 24-hour lifestyle. Equipped with a state-of-the-art Helios recording console, the RSM soon gained popularity among other musicians, leading to the creation of countless classic rock albums. Acquired by National Music Centre in 2001, the RSM has since been restored to its former glory and is now parked next to the King Eddy stage where it’s available for artists to record. Many legendary albums were recorded using the RSM, including:
Penguins and Mystery to Me – Fleetwood Mac
Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street – The Rolling Stones
Moonflower – Santana
Zeppelin III and Zeppelin IV – Led Zeppelin
Machine Head, Burn, and Live in Europe – Deep Purple
Live! – Bob Marley and The Wailers
Harvest – Neil Young
Alchemy: Dire Straits Live – Dire Straits
Live in Italy – Lou Reed
Immerse yourself in a historic music experience like no other with unprecedented access to the RSM as we spin Fleetwood Mac’s albums, recorded though this legendary studio back in 1973.
