"(90% of this fruit came from the Rincon vineyard): Vivid red. Heady, exotic bouquet evokes candied red fruits, potpourri and spicecake, with a mineral topnote. Fresh, penetrating raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show impressive clarity and put on weight with air.

" Produced entirely from estate grown Pinot Noir grapes. 10% Rosemary’s Vineyard fruit, 90% Rincon Vineyard fruit . Hand harvested . Fermented with native yeasts in small open top. Aged 17 months in 30% new French oak barrels from Allier and Vosges. The Estate Pinot Noir has a complex bouquet layered with aromas of raspberry, cola, anise, and nutmeg, with subtle hints of smoke and cedar. This full-bodied, elegant Pinot Noir has a plush mouthfeel rich with flavors of red fruit and a minerality characteristic of the Arroyo Grande Valley. This wine pairs well with pan-seared duck breast and wild mushroom ragout. " ~ Winery notes
About Talley Vineyards
The goal at Talley Vineyards is to produce estate grown chardonnay and pinot noir wines of uncompromising quality that best reflect the unique characteristics of each of the Talley family's five San Luis Obispo County vineyards. Complete control over all phases of winegrowing is the guiding principle: from the planting of vines ideally suited to each vineyard site, to viticulture and winemaking that emphasize long term sustainability, low yields and minimal processing, to the gentle bottling of the finished wine. All wines produced under the Talley Vineyards label are grown, produced and bottled by the Talley family.

Talley Vineyards is located in the Arroyo Grande Valley, on California's South Central Coast, eight miles east of the Pacific Ocean. Talley Vineyards produced its first wine in 1986 with the production of 450 cases.

The Talley family owns five unique vineyards comprising 190 acres in Southern San Luis Obispo County. The Rincon Vineyard, Rosemary's Vineyard and the Monte Sereno Vineyard are located in the Arroyo Grande Valley. Oliver's Vineyard and the Stone Corral Vineyard are located in the neighboring Edna Valley. The Talley family also owns the 40-acre Hazel Talley Vineyard in the Templeton Gap area of Paso Robles.
