2004 Varner Hidden Block Spring Ridge Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

14.2% alc, $39. · A highly nuanced wine showing aromas of ripe fruit, roses, oak, tobacco and earth. With time in the glass, the medium-weighted flavors of dark Pinot fruits blossom with supporting hints of spice, edible flowers and herbs. Drinking perfectly now with supple tannins and an appealing softness and roundness. Very good. Reviewed November 13, 2009
