Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011

First of a big batch of Testarossas from WB…fantastic Pinot, cherry is predominant, maybe the slightest bit too fruity? J smells smoke but I’m not really getting that. Maybe it’s my mood, but didn’t leave a ton to the imagination - though not a bomb at all. I’ve been spoiled w good Pinot lately so the bar is high — a month ago

My annual tasting of the Hillside Select allocation and I’ll leave the other bottles alone for 5-10 years... maybe. 😜 The 2017 is great! Beautiful wine. All things Hillside Select; dense, opulent, balanced, and well made. This has been my least favorite in the past 6 years including 2011. That’s like me saying the Testarossa is least favorite Ferrari. This was described as maybe the best wine of the vintage and I could believe that. Looking forward to the tasting in 5 years. — 4 months ago

I have a few bottles in my basement. Just got too pricy. As a cab I don’t think it’s near Backus which is way tooooo pricy . I’m buying Double Back instead. Hugh

@Hugh O'Riordan I can’t argue with that. Napa prices are getting out of hand.

Rob Jensen, owner, and Sue Ryan, lead wine educator at Testarossa joined our group for the tasting. This was Siduri’s Gary’s vineyard Pinot, which I thought rivaled the Testarossa — 10 months ago
