The other day I wrote about visiting Testarossa Winery in Los Gatos.
Today they are a featured wine in the SF Chronicle for Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir.
Rob and his wife were both in the high-tech world before getting the wine bug. They now put their technical passion to work combing old-world wine making techniques with state of the art technology. Pretty cool.
The Chronicle describes the wine as: ripe, concentrated oakier style. Fairly sleek, with tart cherry acidity that lingers on the finish.
None of the picks are cheap. But if you're going to choose one I would pick the Testarossa. 'Cuz Rob is such a nice guy.
