Testarossa

Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Pale purple and ruby hues with a delicate haze. Black cherry crisp, raspberry jam, plum sauce, almond paste, vanilla bean, spearmint, sage, sweet basil, molasses, cardamom, lemongrass, and dried lavender notes on the nose. Tart cherries and herbal influences on the palate. Medium- body and medium acidity. Nicely balanced with a semblance of reserve softening into a juicy ripeness with each encounter. Pairs nicely with herbed pork tenderloin wrapped in prosciutto, roasted butternut squash, and steamed haricots verts.

Vintage 2013. ABV 14.2%.

@Dennis P. Thank you 🙏 Ah, yes, haricots verts are green beans in French. What can I say? Sometimes words / phrases sound a little lovelier in French, like, aubergine (eggplant), pommes frites (French fries), café latte (espresso with steamed milk) ... 😝

@Vanessa D Ahhh, should have known that. My barn is named maison de ma¡s, house of corn. I appreciate the explanation.

#testarossa offered a smooth, pleasant and unassuming #pinotnoir. Light fruit blend gives a great taste with great value. #doctorsvineyard #santaluciahiglands #californiawines #redwine — 3 years ago
