TALLEY 2013 PINOT NOIR ESTATE ARROYO GRANDE VALLEY 750mL

Just like its cousin (the Estate Chardonnay), this also contains fruit from both Rosemary’s and Rincon Vineyards. Aged for 16 months is 23% new French oak barrels, this wine is polished, elegant, fresh, and is still full of flavor.

ANTONIO GALLONI'S VINOUS MEDIA 92 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. They age extremely well too, "but on balance, not weight," as Talley told me."

"Vivid red. Intense aromas of fresh red berries and rose oil, plus suggestions of blood orange and dusty minerals. Silky and fine-grained, offering nervy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of candied rose. Delicate and precise but also deep, with gentle tannins building slowly on the long, sharply focused finish."
