Winemaker's Notes:

Rich, red color. Pretty aromas of strawberry, vanilla, and spice express the cool climate of the Garys' Vineyard. Youthfulness in the palate shows but never takes away from the silky texture. This seductive Pinot Noir finishes with a long and delicate finish. Will age well for 6-7 years.
My Notes:

About Testarossa:

Testarossa Vineyards, located in the historic 19th century Novitiate winery of Los Gatos, was founded in 1993 by husband and wife team of Rob and Diana Jensen. The name Testarossa (Italian for "red-head") was a nickname given to Rob Jensen when he was a university student in Italy. It was there, also, that the Jensens further developed their passion for good food and wine. Along with their winemaker, Ed Kurtzman, the Jensens are dedicated to making small lots of vineyard desgnated wines from only the best vineyards in the cool, ocean-influenced counties of Monterey, Santa Barbara and Sonoma.
