No.327 ニューリリース・ワインイベント Testarossa@Los Gatos

f0097972_4371914.jpg週末、ロスガトスにあるピノノワールとシャルドネが有名なワイナリー Testarossa Vineyards (テスタロッサ・ビンヤード)で、ニューリリースのワインイベント Harvest Festival が開催。前売りチケット制で、一般$40、クラブメンバーは無料。友人に1枚無料チケットをもらって、一緒に参加してきた。

到着してびっくり。すごい人、人、人。ワイン飲み放題に、ロスガトスのいくつかのレストランから軽食ケータリングもあったため、どのブースも長蛇の列。

ニューリリースのワインはというと。
2005 Diana's Reserve Chardonnay は深みのあるシャルドネ。いろんな味がする。個人的には Rosella's Vineyard Chardonnay が一番のお気に入り。レモンのような爽快感とピーチの優しい甘み。でも、全体的に Testarossa のシャルドネは適度な樽の香りで、どれも私好みであることを再認識。

2005 Cuvee Niclaire Pinot Noir はなかなか。複数の畑の厳選されたピノのブレンドで、チェリーのふくよかなフルーツ味にスパイシーさ。若い感じもしたけれど(by 友人&夫)、私は若さがつんっとくるワインも好きなのでGOOD。




ワインは美味しかったけれど、ゆっくり飲める雰囲気ではなく。。ケータリングもラスベガスのビュッフェ顔負けの行列だし。(お味は普通。)あの人数で1人$40はちょっとどうかなぁ。人に飲まれてちょっと疲れてしまいました。。

ポイント評価がワインのすべてではない。とはいえ、これはすごいと認めざるを得ない。ポイントでワイン市場が動いているのも事実だし

ただ、私たちにとっては如何せんちょっとお高い Testarossa のワイン。ニューリリースのシャルドネは $55、ピノは $75。デイリーワインとして飲めるワインではなく。クラブメンバーの友達のディスカウントの恩恵を被るか、時々テイスティングに来て楽しむのが得策。
