Testarossa Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands Garys' Vineyard 2008
Dark red hue. Scents of clove, black pepper, anise, and cherry jump readily out of the glass. Upon further aeration, there are notes of boysenberry, lemon zest and vanilla bean. These fruit and spice flavors carry into the palate and are tamed by fi ne grained tannins and plush acidity. While showing some restraint now, this seamless, smooth Pinot Noir will keep giving complexities over the next 10 years to come.
A Rich, full bodied Pinot. From the famous Garys' Vineyard. This wine bursts with boysenberry, vanilla, and clove plus cherry cola and white pepper. Acid brings a nice freshness to balance out the rich black cherry, spice box, and vanilla bean flavors finishing very long.
