Talley Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2006
Pinot Noir from Central Coast, California
The 2006 Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir has light aromas of deep black cherry. Aeration reveals classic pinot noir flavors of blackberries, raspberries, and earth with the classic plush texture and elegance that is the hallmark of this vineyard. The 2006 Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir is a great match with delicate dark meat dishes such as braised lamb and duck confit.
Wine Spectator - "Intense and powerful, this is full-blown and deeply flavored. The flavors keep building, centered around ripe cherry, raspberry and wild berry, with mineral and pebble notes that are tightly focused. Drink now through 2015."
International Wine Cellar - "Vivid red color. Deeper, brooding cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by mocha and licorice. Chewy dark fruit flavors stain the palate and are framed by dusty tannins. Smoothes out on the broad, sweet finish, with the dark berry note repeating."

About Central CoastView a map of Central Coast wineries
The largest of California's wine growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of California's wine. The district sprawls out, covering most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara. Smaller sub-AVAs of the Central Coast include Monterey Bay, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, Santa Cruz Mountains and many others.
Notable FactsGrape varieties range from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. Some Central Coast wine is generic, bulk wine that contributes to the high production numbers of the area. But many winemakers and wineries, particular in some of the smaller AVAs, are small production artisans, creating unique and high-quality wine. The great thing about the Central Coast is its diversity - you're able to find a number of grape varieties and styles at a number of different price points.
About CaliforniaIt's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California." A country into itself in the wine world, California makes enough varieties and styles to match many European wine countries. It produces a diverse range of wines that span the quality spectrum.
The most famous of the California wine regions is Napa Valley, and these wines are certainly outstanding – but it's not as broad and diverse as its larger neighbor, Sonoma County. Down south, Santa Barbara's Santa Maria Valley is well-known for its Rhône blends, as well as cool-climate varieties like Pinot and Chardonnay. The Central Coast, the largest California AVA, has many different microclimates that lead to a wide range of wines with many sub-AVAs.
