2015 Cuvee Los Gatos Rose of Pinot Noir

For Testarossa’s Cuvée Los Gatos releases, Rob and Diana Jensen and Director of Winemaking Bill Brosseau select and combine vineyard lots from highly regarded growing districts. For this bottling, the grapes were sourced from Central Coast. In particular, a majority of the fruit came from vineyards in the northern end of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation - one of the state’s best known regions for world-class Chardonnay. The Highlands 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.

"Blush pink color. Scents of red cherry, grapefruit, orange blossoms, and marmalade unite in this Rose of Pinot Noir. The flavors stay true to the aroma profile and lend a burst of orange zest, leading into a texture that is bright, fresh, and vibrant. The generous acidity allows for this wine to finish nicely, with a refreshing and pure touch. Enjoy now through 2019."
