We are releasing the 2013 vintage of Pinot Noir to our mailing list customers. The crop was small, so if you have an interest we ask you to place your order early. We'll ship when the weather becomes moderate, or as you instruct us. All the 2013 Pinot Noirs carry the Varner label instead of the Neely label. Because of the very limited amount of Varner Three Blocks, we are obliged to make it available in 3 and 6 bottle options only in order to make sure it is available to everyone. As before, we are offering both a 6 pack and 12 pack sampler, containing either 2 or 4 bottles each of the Hidden Block, Picnic Block and Upper Picnic Block.
We are also very excited to offer our new 2014 Santa Barbara Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara County, Los Alamos Vineyard. Here's how Antonio Galloni described it-
"Crushed flowers, sweet tobacco, dried cherries and mint are some of the notes that lift from the 2014 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard. Distinctly savory and aromatic, the Pinot is a very pretty wine. Ideally, it might have a bit more mid-palate richness to fill out its frame, but nevertheless, this is a strong debut from the Varner brothers. And the price? A steal in the realm of handmade wines."
As always, we appreciate your support and we hope you enjoy the wines- Bob and Jim
