Planted in 1997, La Rinconada sits adjacent to the famed Sanford & Benedict Vineyard, the cornerstone of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation in Santa Barbara County. The same soil and climate conditions that make Sanford & Benedict an ideal spot for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay exist in the neighboring La Rinconada Vineyard.
The vineyard is made up of 11 acres of Pinot Noir and 9 acres of Chardonnay. Testarossa has been making both since 2012.
Deep red hue. Aromas of red cherry, boysenberry, blackberry, papaya, and crème brulee make for an irresistible experience. Once tasted, this wine engulfs all senses and is oozing with concentration. While it boasts amazing depth and richness, there is a sophisticated complexity laying beneath the surface. The wine showcases great intensity and poise, a combination rarely seen in Pinot Noir. This beauty should continue to be breath-taking for many more years to come. Enjoy now through 2025.
