Los Alamos Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

This way over-delivers. Cranberry, black tea, bergamot, tobacco, camphor, dried mushrooms and a distinct loaminess. Perhaps a tad austere for the average bloke, with some elevated VA to boot. But this is a rather serious Pinot Noir with plenty of potential for extensive aging. I’m getting decidedly Old World vibes. — a month ago

Spring Ridge Vineyard Hidden Block Pinot Noir 2013

Had this a year ago, aged nicely. Bob and Jim Varner started planting in 1980. Deep Ruby, slight brown edges, aromas of ripe berry fruits with earthy smoky cedar. On the palate cherry and raspberry with currant notes, good balance. Fine savory tannins, long ending with ripe fruit, toasty spice and earthy character. Drink now!! — a year ago

Central Coast Chardonnay

Super clean, brisk chard, no oak. Well done, Varner. Does it get any better at $14 a bottle?! Foxglove is a superb 2nd label. So consistent. QPR champ. — 4 months ago

Matanzas Creek Winery

Desvelado Red Malbec Blend 2016

Pretty unique blend here of nearly 50/50 Malbec and Merlot, just a little cab. This is a fun wine with good structure and lots of complexity. Earthy and tight but opens up to a good fruit forward finish.

@Jillian Varner says this is like a “musty cured meat cabinet” which is hilariously on point.
