TALLEY 2013 CHARDONNAY ESTATE ARROYO GRANDE VALLEY 750mL

ANTONIO GALLONI'S VINOUS MEDIA 91 POINTS - "Long-time followers of this large estate, which was a pioneer in the Central Coast, shouldn't be surprised that sommeliers whose focus often unfairly shuns California wines in general have a soft spot for what owner Brian Talley calls "wines that can seduce with understatement," which is the style that was always the goal here, "because it's what this part of the region does best." Indeed, Talley's wines match up very nicely with the best that the Sta. Rita Hills, for example, has to offer, matching those wines for perfume, silkiness and vibrancy of fruit."

"Pale gold. Aromas of orange, pineapple, white flowers and smoky lees. Spicy, high-pitched and focused, with juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors given further punch by building minerality. Shows strong tension on the smoky, floral finish, which leaves behind a suggestion of iodine. "

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "This is another terrific lineup of Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from Brian Talley and winemaker Eric Johnson. Located in Edna Valley, they release a number of single-vineyard (also from the Arroyo Grande Valley) as well as solid value-priced appellation releases and their Bishop's Peak bottlings. Most are completely destemmed and aged in a modest amount of new oak."

"Another medium-bodied, Burgundian-style effort is the 2013 Chardonnay Estate Arroyo Grande Valley. Seeing nine months in 15% new French oak, it has classic apple blossom, white peach and citrus aromas and flavors, medium-bodied richness and a vibrant, clean and classy style. Coming from a blend of Rincon, Rosemary and Monte Sereno Vineyards, it's a no-brainer purchase and will drink nicely for 4-5 years."
