The 2009 Chardonnay Verna's was fermented and aged in neutral oak with some batonnage. It presents deep rich layers of tropical fruit butterscotch and spices all of which come together nicely on a rich textured frame. The Verna's finishes with excellent lushness and body. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018.

Subtle aromas of lemon melon tarragon and white flowers. Dense and supple on entry then silky but firm in the middle with reticent but complex honeydew and orange flavors and a hint of herbs. Finishes with very good length and a hint of spice. - Josh Raynolds

Supple and broad on the palate there is great depth of fruit. White peach and nectarine are followed by spicy pear and are held tightly together by bright acids which carry through to a long finish closing with a hint of white pepper. Drink now and over the next 3-5 years.
