Talley Arroyo Grande Estate Pinot Noir (375ML) 2007
Pinot Noir from Central Coast, California
The 2007 year began with an exceptionally cold winter that prolonged dormancy. Bud break was very even and the remainder of the year hosted mild temperatures with one unusual heat spike in September. The harvest was very small, yet the quality of the fruit was exceptional with concentrated, intense flavors.
The 2007 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.
International Wine Cellar - "Dark red. Black raspberry and cherry-cola on the nose. Deeper and smokier than the Edna Valley bottling, with sweet cherry and blackberry flavors and a chewy texture. Finishes on a refreshingly bitter note of cherry skin and with very good persistence."
