The vineyard was originally planted in 1991 and Testarossa’s blocks include more than 10 different Pinot Noir clones. Both Lone Oak and Doctor’s are certified sustainable.
"Deep red color. Brilliant aromas of cherry, ripe raspberry, ripe cranberry, and lemon are followed by darker notes of boysenberry and currant. Upon aeration, notes of sage, violet, jasmine, and rose petal make for an engaging aroma profile. As the wine segues to the palate, the same characters remain and are met with some oak spice. The tannins are so juicy and lush now, making for immediate enjoyment yet the youthful acidity gives flexibility for some extended aging as well. This hedonistic wine finishes with youth and intricacies, making it sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Enjoy now through 2026."

"From its very deep, beautifully oaked, incisively cherry-like aromas to its stunningly long flavors, this finely honed offering hits all of the right varietal marks, and its richness comes with remarkable polish. It smacks of vanilla and cola at one moment and at flowers the next while remaining ever anchored by authoritative, extraordinarily pure, Pinot fruit, and more than persisting on and on at the finish, it seems to build on the palate and reveal more as it goes. Its considerable virtues are hard to miss now, but it comes with an unmistakable promise of showing even more with time, and it has the balance, fruity depth and energy to arrive at its tenth birthday without having lost a single step."
