Just Tasted : 2014 Testarossa Pinot Noir Rose
We recently signed up for the wine club at Testarossa winery, after our first visit to their location in Los Gatos. One of the wines we picked up was this delightful 2014 Cuvee Los Gatos Pinot Noir Rose. It’s not listed on their tasting menu, so if you go, ask them if it’s available to try. You will fall in love! The heart breaker to this story is they make a very limited supply of this wine, so when they run out, its out until the next release.
I’ve really come to adore roses made from Pinot Noir grapes. They have a bright, fruity flavor that pairs perfectly with food. I love the color on this wine; a soft pink-orange tone. On the palate you pick up fresh orange peel and bright floral notes. Its super smooth and ultra delicious. Bonus, its a 2014! Which, here in the wine country was a phenomenal year!! I mean stupidly great, so if you’re out shopping and happen upon a 2014, good chances are it will be pretty enjoyable.
