Testarossa Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands Doctor's Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

“I love working with fruit from Doctor’s Vineyard. They farm very conscientiously and have planted an interesting mix of clones. Every vintage, this is one of our most expressive and popular Pinots. The wine’s combination of rich fruit and bright acidity make it very versatile for food-pairing. Traditional pairings include roast chicken, duck, or salmon. Or try it with grilled lamb chops and mushrooms.” - Bill Brosseau

Intensly welcoming bouquet leads to a bevy of dark fruit flavor on the palate. This wine will evolve and achieve even more voluptuousness in flavor with a few years of age. Recieved 95pts from Robert Parker Wine Advocate.

Explosive nose, rich and vibrant. Lots of cedar, black cherries, Asian spices, and something faintly resinous. Testarossa continues to produce outstanding Pinots.
