Testarossa Winery Santa Cruz Mountains
The focus here is top-quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay along with two red blends the Cabernet based Los Gatos Rob’s Red and a Santa Cruz Mountains Meritage. Originally the wines were sourced from Monterey vineyards but the Jensens now scour the whole Central Coast to produce the best possible examples. The range covers no fewer than 25 single-vineyard cuvées as well as appellation wines, which are invariably good to very good indeed, with consistently impressive results. The Pinots are rich and gamey with no shortage of oak; the Chardonnays are riper and fuller than some of the more minerally, restrained styles elsewhere. They possess a marvellously rich weight and texture and can be enjoyed with just a year or two in bottle. (DM)
