2017 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

Working closely with the top vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands’ appellation, Testarossa has produced yet another distinctive vintage of this highly anticipated Pinot Noir. The Highlands is one of the state’s best known regions for world-class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The area’s close proximity to Monterey Bay makes for a very cool climate, with one of California’s longest growing seasons. The resulting slow, gentle ripening allows for full flavor development on the vine. Testarossa’s production team’s partnership with the best estates in the Santa Lucia Highlands ensure only the highest quality fruit makes it to the winery.

TASTING NOTES

"Brick red hue.  Aromas of ripe cranberry, red cherry, orange peel followed by notes of boysenberry jam and ripe blackberry.  Upon taste, these characters focus towards red fruits and citrus.  This wine is lively on the palate with bright acidity and polished tannins.  As this wine lingers, it continues a fresh and pleasing journey.  Enjoy now through 2024."

~Bill Brosseau, Director of Winemaking
