Testarossa Syrah Thompson Vineyard 2005

Last September Tom and I went to California to visit some friends for my birthday. They took us to several vineyards, Testarossa being one of them. We ended up joining their wine club. This was one of our recent club wines.
Beautiful ruby red in color, it had lots of vibrant fruit aromas. Full in body with loads of ripe fruit (raspberries, plums). Smooth tannins, well-balanced, good acidity with a nice finish. An excellent club wine!
