2015 Graham Family Vineyard Pinot Noir

Graham Family Vineyard is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley appellation and is the only vineyard Testarossa Winery sources Pinot Noir from north of the Winery. Graham Family is located in the sub-appellation of Green Valley in western Sonoma County where the vines enjoy the rich Gold Ridge sandy loam soil with its unique water-holding capacity. The vineyard is just less than 10 miles from the coast and has that long growing season that Pinot Noir loves. Graham Family Vineyard consists of 9 acres of Pinot Noir. Testarossa has been proudly making Graham Family Pinot Noir since 2004.

Tasting Notes

Brick red hue. Engaging scents of red cherry, cinnamon, cranberry, and jasmine at first try. Then there is a second wave of aromas of orange zest, red licorice, and boysenberry jelly. As with the aroma profile, the flavors stay true yet with some amplification of the cherry and cinnamon profile. Given the low yields in 2015, there is an increase of concentration and fine grain tannins, giving this wine incredible dimension. As the wine lingers on the palate, it finishes with intricate, yet fleshy flavors and textures. Enjoy now through 2026.
