VARNER Pinot Noir, Los Alamos Vineyard 2014

This Pinot Noir is a lovely showing from Varner, the 33% clone 777 and 67% Pommard clone was sourced from two blocks of the Los Alamos vineyard and is where the vines are planted on gentle slopes in shallow, low vigor soils. It displays bright aromas of wild forrest berries along with a mix of dried spices and floral along with an earthy edge. On the palate this is beautifully structured and well balanced with a silky texture. This will still require some additional time in bottle to soften up and fully express itself.
