    I adore Varner's 2014 Pinots. Sure, they're special as a last-of-a-generation bottlings from the Spring Ridge Vineyard, but more importantly there about as serious as you'll find in domestic Pinot Noir anywhere near this price range. With aromas of currant, strawberry, red flowers and white pepper, the aromas alone are enough to get lost in. The palate is full of deep red fruit, sauvage, and mint, on a medium bodied, structured palate. This reminds me of a young 1er Cru from Volnay or Pommard — it has a deep profile and the potential to unwind beautifully over many, many years. At this price, it will be hard to resist young, but it is a wine that will reward patience over the long term.

    What might just be a final shot at Spring Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir from Varner; the 2014 Hidden Block is in a perfect place for drinking. Still full of abundant, rich, warm fruit and exotic spice, but now with subtle and complex secondary characters just starting to develop. The texture is soft and lush with gentle acidity giving brightness and form. Forest floor notes meet dusty berries, toasted spices and truffle. A lovely showing with a nice few yeas in bottle. Last chance pricing before it's gone for good.
