Testarossa's 2012 Vintage Receives Rave Reviews From International Wine Review


"The 2012 growing season was excellent and the quality of the grapes is revealed in the wines. Weather conditions allowed for long hang time, full ripening of the fruit, and abundant yields. The whites and reds exhibit rich flavors with good acidity and structure that will allow for good aging over the coming years. The Chardonnays can generally be enjoyed now for up to five years; the Pinot Noirs for seven to ten years."
