The Varner 2013 'Picnic Block' Spring Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir is an elegant, vibrant wine from the Varners' home vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This is an especially big, ample, masculine-style Pinot Noir with notes of sweet dark cherry, dark spices, smoke, integrated oak, and forest floor and nicely structured tannins.
