A golden-green hue glistens brightly with opulent citrus elements of lemon peel and orange blossom. Other scents of yellow fruits such as cassava and pluot mix with decadent hints of magnolia, white cake batter, kettle corn and brown butter. A subtle hint of pebbles and pineapple basil flows in the background. On the palate the wine is rich and fleshes out these nuances more comprehensively giving it ample weight but remains vibrant and fresh.

Wine Advocate

The 2008 Chardonnay Verna’s displays orange blossom, nectarine, and honeysuckle, with white peach notes. With zesty acidity and medium to full body, this is a juicy, clean, pure, and vibrant style of Chardonnay to drink over the next 3 or so years.

Score: 91. —Robert Parker, August 2010.

Wine Enthusiast

Very ripe and forward in pineapples and honey, with brisk acidity. Good and rich, but seems overwrought, lacking complexity and nuance, like a fruit juice drink.

Score: 86. —Steve Heimoff, August 01, 2010.
