VARNER Pinot Noir, Spring Ridge Vineyard 'Picnic Block' 2013

The 2013 ’Picnic block’ more of a rustic showing than the flashy ‘Upper Picnic Block’ and opens with dried cherries and plums followed by dried earth, exotic spices, dried herbs and crushed stones. On the palate this shows notable depth, but with a refined, more structured palate before making a lovely transition into the finish. (Best 2016-2020) - May, 2016 (JD)
