Owned by the Talley Family, who have farmed Southern San Luis Obispo County for three generations, the Rosemary's Vineyard dates back to 1982. Planted just 8 miles Northeast of the Pacific Ocean, the vineyard has soils that are reminiscent of Burgundy, in particularly the Côte de Nuits with its steep terrain, infusion of weathered rocks, and well drained soils. Working closely with the Talley Family, Testarossa owners, Rob and Diana Jensen, and Director of Winemaking Bill Brosseau, have created this very exceptional Pinot Noir with classic old world flavors.
"Deep crimson hue. Our first release of this rare, and breath-taking vineyard. Nestled in the Talley Farm property, the careful tending in the vineyard shows by the purity and depth of characters. There are loads of pomegranate scents, followed by raspberry, cranberry, and cherry. With some air, secondary aromas of red licorice and rose petals linger in the background. Upon taste, the floral notes fade, allowing the red fruits to concentrate as well as give way to some blackberry, boysenberry, and blueberry flavors. Wonderful polish with its silky smooth tannins, sailing into an intricate and mineral laden finish. Enjoy now through 2024."
