Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby in color, this wine balances rich aromas of boysenberry, vanilla and rose hips with hints of white pepper and mineral. On the palate there are delicate flavors of cranberry, light herbs and chalky minerals characteristic of the site. This full bodied wine has a velvety texture that finishes with elegant, graceful tannins. The 2011 Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir pairs well with a pan seared duck breast.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The most complete and impressive in the lineup, the smoking good 2011 Pinot Noir Rosemary’s Vineyard, which spent 18 months on lees in 30% new French oak, offers up gorgeous raspberry, raspberry, vanilla, underbrush, assorted wild flowers and edgy minerality to go with a medium-bodied, elegant and thrillingly textured and seamless palate. Deep, layered and savory, with perfect balance and a classic, age-worthy feel, it should be given a handful of years in the cellar and enjoyed over the following decade or more. Drink 2015-2026.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This bottling is often Talley’s best Pinot each vintage, and so it is in 2011. It’s full bodied in style with a dark color hinting at the superripe cherries, raspberries and cola flavors. Yet it never loses Pinot’s essential silkiness. Structured and nuanced, it’s a natural cellar candidate to drink from 2017–2021.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Intense and vibrant with a complex array of subtle earth, dried dark berry, sour cherry and exotic spice notes. Tight now, this gains with air and should only get better. Best from 2014 through 2023.

Talley Vineyards, California

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.
