Varner Three Blocks Spring Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011

The 2011 Pinot Noir Spring Ridge Vineyard Three Blocks is a blend of the three Pinots the Varners make under the Neely label... Dark red cherry, plum, cinnamon, leather and mint meld together in a deep, resonant Pinot bursting at the seams with personality. Today, the Three Blocks seems most marked by the Upper Picnic Block. It is also the richest and most intense Pinot in the Varner and Neely lineups. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Most Santa Cruz pinots I've had are light in color but pack a surprising amount of flavor as this one is. Pinot fruit is a bit more austere/held back; "underbrush" comes to mind. Enjoyable.

Dense, compact, balanced. This should age well
