2014 Cuvee Los Gatos Rob's Red

Cuvée Los Gatos is a special wine made by Testarossa Winery to pay homage to the town of Los Gatos, where the historic novitiate winery was built in 1888 and continues to produce wine today.

For Testarossa’s Cuvée Los Gatos releases, co-founders Rob and Diana Jensen and Director of Winemaking Bill Brosseau select and combine vineyard lots from highly regarded growing districts. For this bottling, the grapes were sourced from the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Santa Lucia Highlands. The areas’ close proximity to Monterey Bay makes for a cool climate, with one of California’s longest growing seasons. The resulting slow, gentle ripening allows for full flavor development on the vine.

TASTING NOTES

"Deep red hue.  Intense notes of boysenberry, currant, blueberry followed by a fusion of gamey characters, pomegranate, and anise.  These characters smooth out once on the palate and are matched with firm, yet flowing tannins on the mouthfeel.  Bold and brawny yet pure and defined blend of hearty red varietals.  Can be a great companion to many meat-based dishes but also by itself.  Enjoy now through 2020."  ~ Director of Winemaking Bill Brosseau
