2008 Testerossa Pinot Noir Niclaire
WB Rating: 90

Alcohol by volume: 14.7%
Price at time of purchase: $0.00 (gift)
Type: Pinot Noir / Burgundy
Principal varietal(s): Pinot Noir

A blend of the best barrels from various appellations (presumably mostly Santa Lucia Highlands), the 2008 Niclaire is a smooth, rich, satisfying Pinot with oodles of dark berry fruit and an intriguing camphor-like component, along with floral dark rose notes, earthy complexity, and a hint of spice. Powerful but balanced, beautifully made. - HK 2015-03-07
