Limited new Pinot release from Testarossa - only 596 cases produced. Deep red color. Black cherry and a bit of plum on the nose with rose petal, cloves, and spice. The spice / fruit combo carries onto the palate, with some additional raspberrry and pepper characters. There is a nice touch of vanillin-oak that will continue to integrate with time. Medium weight tannins give the wine weight and carry the fruit to a long, bright finish. Exceptionally food friendly - try it with grilled salmon, roast duck or lamb. Drink now through 2018.
