TALLEY PINOT NOIR RINCON VINEYARD ARROYO GRANDE VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: This is a super pretty Rincon, with a trace less density but considerably more style and early appeal than is typical with this notoriously age-needy bottling. The nose is a focused perfume of red boysenberry, bottled cherry, Maraschino cherry, red plum, red licorice, wild strawberry, blood orange, pink peppercorn, coriander seed and star anise scents. It’s every bit as lovely on the palate, where Bing cherry, Maraschino cherry, Amarena cherry, whortleberry, pink peppercorn, yellow rose, coriander, white pepper and star anise roll-out in a racy, lingering, gently palate-coating mix of great elegance and charm. Already delightful, it should be fully mature in three years or so. 192 cases made.
Aged 18 months in 22% new French oak, The 2013 Pinot Noir Rincon Vineyard is medium-bodied, juicy and lively, with bright acidity giving plenty of lift to its spring flowers, forest floor, mint and sweet Pinot Noir fruit. Made in a pretty, crystalline and elegant style, it's a gorgeous 2013 that will have a decade of longevity. eRobertParker.com # , #220 (Aug 2015) Drink 2015 - 2023 Jeb Dunnuck
Bright ruby-red. Potent, mineral-laced red fruit and floral pastille scents pick up deeper cola and licorice qualities with aeration. Juicy, penetrating and pure, offering fresh raspberry and candied rose flavors and a suggestion of blood orange that sharpens the back half. Closes spicy and very long, with smooth tannins shaping the wine's sweet, juicy fruit. This suave Pinot was made with 30% whole clusters. Drink 2022 - 2027. Josh Raynolds Sep 2015
