Tasting Notes

Founded by husband and wife Rob and Diana Jensen in 1993, Testarossa Vineyards strives to make world-class pinot noir from cool-climate California fruit. This 2005 is sourced from the Sonoma Coast's "La Cruz Vineyard" and it really showcases the site's maritime influences. A hint of minerality offers a nice counterpoint to red cherry and spice aromas which continue in the mouth; pure red and blue fruit on the palate are balanced by well-integrated tannins and good acidity. 91 points CG: "Perfectly focused red cherry Pinot Noir fruit scents combine in the stylish aromas with notes of allspice, roasted vanilla beans and a quiet bit of minerality, and a similar set of enticing characteristics bring great charm and admirable depth to the rich, ripe, deeply fruited flavors. Supple in feel with early evidence of developing velvet to its texture, this wine has the purity of fruit, the balance and the concentration to last for many years in the bottle and to grow better and better with age." (10/07) 89 points Wine Enthusiast: "A good example of a fine, ripe coastal Pinot, with bright raspberry, cherry, cola and cinnamon spice flavors that finish dry and crisp. The silky mouthfeel, with its light, gentle dusting of tannins, is just what you want in a Pinot Noir." (11/07)
