95pointsTestarossa 2009 Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands)

So delicious, so dazzlingly seductive, it's impossible not to fall in love with this wine. It detonates on the palate with an explosion of cherries and raspberries, and wonderfully smoky, buttery complexities from oak. Drily crisp and finely structured in smooth, dense tannins, it offers great pleasure now, and should develop over the next 6–8 years. Production was low, but it's worth a search.
