TALLEY PINOT NOIR ROSEMARY'S VINEYARD ARROYO GRANDE VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: Deep and juicy, the nose of this always luxurious wine poises pretty baking spice and sweet tobacco notes in support of rich boysenberry, sweet red cherry, red plum, whortleberry and pink rose fruit. It is bright, zesty and luxuriously oaky on the palate, where baking-spice, tobacco and anise notes join lots of red fruit to glide through a graceful and lingering finish. As always, this is the plumpest, creamiest and most immediately approachable of Talley’s vineyard-designated Pinots. Expect three years of steady improvement. 517 cases made.
At the same level as the Rincon Vineyard in 2013, the beautiful 2013 Pinot Noir Rosemary's Vineyard saw a similar elevage and saw 18 months in 28% new French oak. A bigger, richer effort, it offers terrific black raspberry, raspberry, spice, rose petal and hints of minerality on the nose. Lacking a touch of the precision and focus of the Rincon effort, it makes up for it with medium to full-bodied richness, a rounded, supple, sexy texture and beautiful length. eRobertParker.com # , #220 (Aug 2015) Drink 2015 - 2023 Jeb Dunnuck
Deep red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red fruits, rose pastille and Asian spices, plus a zesty mineral topnote. Juicy, lithe and sharply focused, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become weightier with air. Shows excellent power and focus on the incisive, gently tannic finish, which features notes of allspice and raspberry liqueur. Drink 2022 - 2027. Josh Raynolds Sep 2015
