Estate Viognier Verna's 2010
Exotic aromas of grilled pineapple, macadamia, honeycomb and prickly pear mix with intriguing notes of ginger, sage, tuberose and yellow blossom. The rich mouthfeel expands on these components while maintaining a crisp and energizing finish. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 93 points by Robert Parker: ...Possibly the finest 100% Viognier being produced in California, its complex aromatics include notes of white peaches, apricots, honeysuckle, wet rocks, and assorted tropical fruits.

Bright gold hue and significant green tones. The aromatics are intense providing ample amounts of Geranium blossom on top of waves of lychee and a background of pine forest within a framework of briny minerality. The complexity of the minerality continues on the palate followed by unctuous sweet tropical fruit and floral notes. The full body really coats the mouth and provides a lengthy finish of seashell which moderates the sweetness. This needs food and is a strong contender for your holiday meals of roast turkey stuffing sweet potato casserole and cranberry sauce. Chris Greene.
