Winemaker Notes

The 2000 Estate Pinot Noir is the most elegant since the highly successful vintages of 1998 and 1994, though this wine shows more red fruit character than its predecessors. Velvety cherry and vanilla flavors are foreshadowed by evocative aromas of cinnamon, clove and rose petal. The lingering finish is clean, sweet and refreshing.

The 2000 Estate Pinot Noir was produced entirely from Pinot Noir grapes grown in the Talley Family's two vineyards in the Arroyo Grande Valley. 60% of the blend came from Rosemary's Vineyard, the vineyard located one mile west of the Talley Vineyards winery, surrounding Don and Rosemary Talley's home. Rosemary's Vineyard is noted for producing opulent Pinot Noir with velvety tannins. The seventeen year-old vines growing on the steep clay/limestone hillsides of the Rincon Vineyard contributed the balance of the blend and the flavor components of leather and spice.

Talley Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery that specializes in estate grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir ideally suited for the climate and soils of the Arroyo Grande and Edna Valleys. The Talley’s farming history in the area dates to 1948 when Oliver Talley began growing vegetables in the Arroyo Grande Valley. Guided by this legacy and a commitment to long term sustainability, Talley Vineyards focuses on attention to detail in all aspects of farming and winemaking operations. The goal is to produce distinctive wines of consistently high quality that best express the unique character of each of the Talley family’s six vineyard sites in the two valleys.

Talley Vineyards is located in the Arroyo Grande Valley, seven miles east of the Pacific Ocean in San Luis Obispo County on California's South Central Coast. We are approximately halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles and less than 10 minutes from Highway 101 in Arroyo Grande.

One of the coolest growing areas in California, the Arroyo Grande Valley runs from the southwest to the northeast, just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean and is part of the Central Coast AVA. Situated so that cold Pacific Ocean air and fog is allowed to filter into the valley, Arroyo Grande also has an incredibly long growing season. Bud break occurs in February in most years with flowering in May and harvest in late September; the area is classified as cool Mediterranean.

These weather factors combined with the soil types—continental and marine rocks, greywacke, limestone, shale and volcanic—create wines with great concentration and fresh acidity. The cooler end of the valley is perfect for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and is a good producer of sparkling wines. The warmer, more inland part of the valley is home to some of California’s oldest Zinfandel vines.
