"Varner's "Bee Block" is comprised of slightly younger vines than the Home Vineyard or Amphitheater Block—20-years-old—located a slightly lower elevation. The wine is quite youthful and a bit riper than the other two, showing a lot more stone fruit. But the wine's acidity is still lush and the wine is quite full-bodied. There's just a hint of mineral on the finish. "
