Light lemon yellow color; ripe, green apple, ripe pear, gooseberry nose; silky textured, tart pear, mineral, tart gooseberry palate with delineation and medium acidity; medium-plus finish.
Robert Parker: An incredible effort, Varner's 2012 Chardonnay Bee Block Spring Ridge Vineyard (464 cases) comes all from 25-year-old Chardonnay vines that are planted on a northeast-facing slope that lies at an elevation of 670-735 feet. Aged in 25% new French oak, it offers stunning notes of white flowers, white peach, honeysuckle and crushed rock (there's serious minerality here) that slowly build in the glass, showing more more brioche and hints of nuttiness with air. Full-bodied, seamless and layered, with crisp underlying acidity and fabulous purity, this classic Chardonnay can be consumed anytime over the coming 5-7 years, if not longer.
